Graduate Fashion Week is just a few weeks away and as the students run around putting the finishing touches to their collections maybe they should be considering who might be watching. As well as plenty of proud parents and members of the press, it has been revealed that design scouts from established houses such as Hermès, Calvin Klein, and Marc Jacobs will also be there.
In March we announced that Claudia Schiffer would be on the judging panel this year and she will appear alongside Zandra Rhodes, Henry Holland and Gareth Pugh. Established designers who began showing at GFW include Stella McCartney, Julien Macdonald and Hussein Chalayan.
New sponsors have also been unveiled for this year's event including the British Fashion Council, Pringle of Scotland and Mulberry. River Island will continue to be the main sponsor.
