The 32nd Graduate Fashion Week begins today, June 10 in London, where students from across the UK will showcase their final-year collections across 26 different fashion disciplines.

The four-day event, organised by charitable organisation the Graduate Fashion Foundation is taking place at The Old Truman Brewery in East London and marks the largest platform in the world for BA fashion talent.

From June 10 to 13, GFW will showcase the freshest upcoming stars in design, creative direction, marketing, communication, photography, illustration and all aspects of the modern fashion business.

Alongside catwalk shows from GFW member universities, including Liverpool John Moores, Manchester Fashion Institute and University for the Creative Arts, the annual event also offers industry professionals the opportunity to scout up-and-coming talent in the fashion space ahead of their graduation from university.

In addition, GFW 2024 has a series of talks and masterclasses, including topics such as how to start a viral fashion brand, understanding generative AI, what fashion recruiters are looking for, and how graduates can turn their ideas into reality. There are discussions on how to be part of the circular economy, mental health, and protecting work from copycats.

Throughout the event, GFW will also present awards to the most promising graduates, spanning categories such as innovation and sustainability, alongside disciplines across textile design, styling and creative direction.
