Graduate Fashion Week A/W 2017 International Designer Collections
“Over the past few years it has been fun watching this international element of GFW grow. As International Trustee I have really enjoyed bringing different institutions together under one platform. Today we have over 30 top institutes from all over the world showing in London, in a contemporary world where collaboration has replaced hard competitiveness, united in sharing all our successes and celebrate our differences. The culture of fashion has many different aspects in different parts of the world and each country enjoys expressing their own identity.” – Adrien Yakimov Roberts, International Trustee at Graduate Fashion Week.
