“We are also looking forward to showcasing the students work to industry visitors during the event through student portfolios and our presentation on Monday evening.

Manchester Fashion Institute held a presentation at the University earlier in May, from which a selection of fifteen students were chosen to showcase their work at the Graduate Fashion Week static show on Monday 4th June.

The week is responsible for launching the careers of some of the most successful designers of our time including Christopher Bailey MBE, who was the winner of the first ever Graduate Fashion Week Gold Award, Stella McCartney, Giles Deacon, Matthew Williamson and Julien Macdonald.
