Today was the first day of Graduate Fashion Week and looking at my diary for the week, most probably the only day I could attend.
I met up with Cliqisse (www.clicqisse.co.uk) director Daryl at the entrance area. I love trend spotting so was just simply fascinated by the way all these fashionistas had put their ensembles together.
A fashion show was commencing within 5 minutes of my arrival so I headed straight to the show entrance where I met and was introduced to the Chairman of Graduate Fashion Week, Terry Mansfield. We had a brief chat about projects I am currently working on as well as past projects. He then escorted us to the show which was for De Montfort University.
Other shows I watched that followed included Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication and Winchester School of Art.
I also bumped into Naomi from Nolcha Metier, who was reviewing and covering features for the next Metier issue.

I collect vintage Chanel leather bags so when I spotted this lovely fashionista with her gorgeous Chanel bag, I just had to take a snap of her.
Other outfits I liked included…
After one of the shows I bumped into this stylist (below pic) called Kaz (www.kazlonge.moonfruit.com ) who definitely stood out with her gorgeous combination of colours and matching headgear.
I couldn’t make it for the final show as I had to dash off but all in all I can say that some of the designs produced were beyond exceptional and I wish all the graduates the best of luck.
I thanked Terry and said my goodbyes to all.
