“Free to express who you are without the constraints of society’s stereotypes”
An array of talent, diversity, inimitability and harmony under one roof: Graduate Fashion Week 2017 is the world’s leading event celebrating the creativity of students and graduates within fashion. Held in the heart of East London, GFW was an immersive world of innovative fashion from rising industry designers. Founded in 1991, with the aim of unifying UK and International universities, giving over 1,000 graduates the opportunity to showcase their work.
Over 40 universities took part which left the building full of colour and vibrancy. Two students
in particular who’s work stood out were Sarah Bell Jones and Rachael Weir from Edinburgh College of Art. It was hard to miss as the bright yellows and pinks screamed out from across the room, especially Sarah’s signature piece: a flamboyant long coat which was made from various types of textures and faux fur, accessorised with plastic chillies and cherries. Rachael’s designs ooze 70’s disco fever, also extremely vivacious and extravagant.
