As a warm up for the SS09 fashion weeks, GFW took place between Sunday the 8th June and ended on Thursday last week. GFW is the abbreviation for Graduate Fashion Week and is a fashion expo giving fashion graduates from the biggest fashion institutions within the borders of the United Kingdom, proudly show off their skills in hope of scoring some sponsorship money for setting up their own label.
On Wednesday last week the gala show took place in accordance with the previous years. The Gala Show is a recap of the entire week with 29 of the best graduates showing off their creations on the catwalk in front of judges who have nominated them for various awards and sponsorship money. Gathered at the Gala Show were “goodie bag” hungry stylists and various editors who were too lazy to attend all the collection which were exhibited throughout the week. Except for collections, other graduates involved in make-up, fashion marketing and other related profession have put their final year projects up on display. The level of talent is immense with creativity flowing like champagne at a P. Diddy party. Dedication and passion is what led to fantastic final year piece making all graduates worthy of applauses.
