Graduate Fashion Show, held at the Truman Brewery in London on 3-6 June, showcased fashion graduates final collections from over 60 of the UK universities and colleges, with industry professionals as the judges.

I have to say a huge congratulations to Edinburgh College of Art, where 7 of their students were selected for the Gala Show. What an outstanding achievement for the University and I like to mention ¾ of the Universities selected were from the North of the UK, which I found interesting. We mostly think London is the place to be for a fashion student.

So here’s the break down for Graduate Fashion Show Awards…..
