Graduate Fashion Week 2015

Leave a Comment
Graduate Fashion Week is a four day event, that takes place at the beginning of June. Over the course of the weekend over 60 graduates, from leading universities across the country had the opportunity to showcase their end of year collections…and boy was I in for a treat! This event is the world's largest fashion spectacle, attended by many big industry celebrities. GFW has produced some of the finest designers of today- Stella Mccartney, Matthew Williamson, Christopher Bailey, to name a few.   

I was fortunate enough to attend the prestigious Gala evening, when the winning designers 2015 were announced by Laura Whitmore.  I was very impressed by the whole production, including the creative hair and makeup, the beautiful models and of course the fabulous designs. 

Backstage Lan Nguyen-Grealis, head of makeup creation, used an amazing array of products and colours by Bourjois. You must check out the Gala look with Bourjois' Intense Eyeshadow in black, Smokey Eye Pencil in black, and Colour Boost lip crayons in Proudly Naked. I also spied the new gel blush (Aqua Blush) which gave a subtle tint of colour to the cheeks. 

The catwalk hair and makeup look:
The beauty look was ultra chic!-dark smokey eyes teamed with nude lips blew me away, and I adored the sleek pony tails styled by L'Oreal Professional; one look that is easy to re-create at home! 

The George Gold Award (George at Asda were the sponsors) went to Hannah Wallace from Manchester College of Art. Her metallic sportswear and striking puffer jackets impressed the judges, featuring a wide range of shapes and textures that were definitely eye catching. 

Hannah will be one to watch…I will be looking forward to seeing her new designs for George coming soon!
