Students to parade their fashions during Undergraduate Fashion Week
Find out how to watch the UEL catwalk show
Students from the University of East London will this week once again showcase their talents at Undergraduate Fashion Week, the world’s largest gathering of BA fashion.
The events are streamed online as the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown measures mostly still apply. But students and selected ticketed guests will be able to witness the catwalks shows at Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross, this week until 18 June.
UEL students will set their designs in a catwalk show on Wednesday, 16 June, between 4.30pm and 5.30pm. To watch the show, register at the Graduate FashionWeek website, which gives access to live-streamed events, talks, video premiers and digital content.
Beatrice Newham, head of the fashion department at UEL, said, “The students have compiled some eye-catching and intriguing designs, some with some very powerful messages underpinning their themes.
“Our aim is to set this collection before the fashion industry and draw attention not only to individual designers but to the quality of the work that the UEL student body produces.”
Graduate Fashion Week events
The 30th anniversary week also features industry talks alongside design exhibitions and our newly created digital event and portfolio platform making scouting talent and new recruits for industry more accessible year-round.
GFW aims to give new graduates the visibility they need to establish connections with potential recruiters, buyers, stylists and media.
The globally renowned event will showcase the brightest graduate fashion talent across 26 fashion specialisms from the Class of 2021.
