Metallic Marvel for Graduate Fashion Week 2015 Finale

Graduate Fashion Week 2015 came to a grand climax at the end of its four days in Shoreditch, East London. Students and their peers eagerly gathered to meet the likes of Gok Wan and Julian Macdonald, who notably made his debut at Graduate Fashion Week in the nineties. Buyers and sponsors took first row seats of the catwalk, pending the arrival of the fashion stars of the future, presented in twenty-five best out of the thousands of students who took part this year.

Out of the twenty-five, only five collections were to be selected to receive awards, presented by Laura Whitmore.

The creative catwalk award went to Hannah Wallace from Manchester School of Art for her silver sports style collection, which has been particularly noted for it’s originality. Next, Melissa Villeveille was notably mentioned for her impressive efforts too. Ella Nisbett won the Peters Visionary Knitwear award for her Hawaiian inspired designs. Melissa Villeveille also won a scholarship with a second prize of Womenswear, as indeed Ella Nisbett was also selected for a second win with Menswear.

Left pending was the long waited Gold George award, a huge win of ten thousand pounds. This went again to Hannah Wallace of Manchester School of Art. We will see great things from her. She beamed as she walked with her models down the catwalk, an amass of glitter fanning from the ceiling. Her portfolio already impressive enough to turn the heads of Boohoo and George, she will join a list of names to have previously won the award at Graduate Fashion Week, including Matthew Williamson, CEO of Burberry Christopher Bailey, Stella McCartney and Giles Deacon.
