Graduate Fashion Week 2018

I was super excited this year to be asked by Graduate Fashion Week to come along as one of their digital ambassadors. If you follow either of my Instagrams (Hannahswood and Iconiqueparis) I shared lots of snaps throughout the day of what I got up to. Firstly Graduate Fashion Week is an event held in London every year where graduates from all over the country can show case their work. As well as really fun brands, helpful career opportunities and live talks with leading people in the industry, there is lots of competitions and chances to get involved and talk to people from companies. I  got chatting to Boux Avenue one of my favourite lingerie companies and I entered a competition they were holding for the event. I actually won a £250 gift card which is a win win for me!

I visited GFW on the Tuesday for the day. As I am not a graduate yet I obviously wasn't exhibiting any of my own work. I mainly went to look at what this years graduates work looks like from all over the country and to see what different levels the work is at. It is a super inspiring place and there is tons of portfolios from every University that you can look through and get inspired by. I also think it would have been really helpful to visit GFW or similar before starting university, it is super helpful to see all the universities together with all their best work on show.

I also attended one of their live talks while I was there about landing your dream job with Boohoo. The information they had to tell us was really helpful and about skills that were transferable across all fashion jobs. I also went to the De Montfront Univeristy fashion show which was amazing and looked so professional. 

I thought it would be interesting to share some images from GFW Instagram page and some of their live stories on the day, to see what I posted on the day check my 'blogging' area on my live stories on Instagram.
