Graduate Fashion Week
The world’s largest event for fashion graduates
Graduate Fashion Week is a charity organisation founded in 1991 to unify both UK and international university fashion courses and create a stronghold for the creative industries.
Showcasing the work of over 1000 of the very best students and graduates, the annual GFW event attracts 30,000 guests each June. Each event features over 20 catwalk shows, exhibitions from over 40 universities, and the acclaimed GFW Gala Awards Show.
The Here+Now team began working with the charity’s Managing & Creative Director Martyn Roberts (Fashion Scout) in 2015. We handled the event production and operations – managing all third party suppliers, event procurement and tenders, exhibition and catwalk logistics, event catering and hospitality, plus event recruitment and staffing.
As the event grew in scale and ambition the Here+Now team was instrumental in this growth, continually developing and delivering this highly complex event, until 2018.
Our creative production and design skills were utilised to contribute to highly successful event sponsorship activations, catwalk show visuals, an annual branding refresh, pre-event marketing assets, and large signage schemes for the entire event. We continue to provide this support as the charity moves into a new era.
