Graduate Fashion Week 2016 | Behind The Scenes, Working Backstage & Fashion Shows

Hey Guys! This year I worked backstage at Graduate Fashion Week dressing the models for my University. Which is great industry experience and amazing to add to your CV. I also watched some fashion shows and saw some exhibitions the following day. I wanted to film this so you can see what goes on behind the scenes. There were times I literally couldn’t film, as it was really busy or I was actually dressing the models during the show, but at least you can get an idea!

When you are in the 3rd year of your Degree, you create a final collection and only 25 students within your class get selected to show at GFW (depending on if your Uni is registered to showcase at GFW). Big brands such as Vogue and loads of judges watch and critic your collection on the catwalk, to then get shortlisted for the Gala show and more awards. This is your chance to get noticed and stand out as all eyes are on your collection. You can get sponsors, investors, companies contacting you, internships; this is your time to shine. Vivienne Westwood, Christopher Bailey and Julien Macdonald were amongst fashion’s big names celebrating the winners of Graduate Fashion Week 2016.
