With 19 years spent at the forefront of promoting creativity, Graduate Fashion Week has solidified its position as the industry’s looking glass and the greatest showcase of young up and coming fashion talent in the world. Earls Court 2 will see more students, more talent, a brand new Inspiration Award and more inspirational ideas than ever before between 6-10 June. Each year it celebrates the work of more than 1,000 of the finest BA Degree fashion students from 61 member universities across the UK and overseas, for the biggest showcase of young talent in the world.

River Island has one of the biggest design studios on the high-street, packed with some of the hottest talent around, many of them from GFW Universities and a growing proportion recruited from the event itself! Over the past five years alone over 90 new graduates have joined River Island’s award-winning design team and are responsible for creating the unmatchable flow of new original designs hitting River Island stores every day. River Island has agreed to sponsor the event for the sixth year running. The River Island Gold Award has become without doubt the most prestigious and sought after Award in fashion education. Awarded to Myrto Stamou of UCA Rochester in 2009, one student will receive £20,000. Last year’s Award was judged and presented by Lorraine Candy, Editor in Chief of British Elle, Matthew Williamson, Giles Deacon and Richard Bradbury CBE, CEO of title sponsor River Island.

Alberta Ferretti and Kim Jones will be amongst the judges for the River Island Gold Award this year.
