Graduate fashion season will be kicked off in glamorous style at the University of Westminster.
On May 24, BA (Hons) fashion Design studients will be the first to debut their collections at the Ambika P3 venue in central London.
The Westminster runway shows are eagerly anticipated in the fashion world and the BA (Hons) Fashion Design degree course leads the way in producing eminent and creative designers who work across all levels of the international fashion industry.
This year’s students will be showcasing their first collections and many have already gained invaluable experience working in the fashion capitals of the world with highly celebrated designers such as Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Christopher Kane, Roksanda Ilincic, Jeremy Scott, Giles, Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang and Viktor & Rolf.
Last year’s graduates are already working with prestigious international companies such as Mulberry, Puma, Givenchy, Burberry, Abercrombie & Fitch, Thom Browne, Armani and Roksanda Illincic, to name a few and the 2012 graduates are also set to follow in their footsteps.
The University has strong links with the fashion industry, and previous graduates whose designs have graced the graduate runway show include Christopher Bailey of Burberry, Michael Herz of Bally, Stuart Vevers of Loewe, Markus Lupfer and CassettePlaya.
Andrew Groves, course director of the University of Westminster's BA (Hons) Fashion Design,said: “This year’s graduates have shown exceptional creativity and imagination which has been translated into their debut runway collections. Their time with renowned international design houses during their years at the University have been, without doubt, enriching and rewarding experiences and we look forward to a first class graduate show in May.”
