On 5th June Mirfield College Fashion and Textiles students travelled to London to visit Graduate Fashion Week 2019 – an annual event where 40 Universities from around the world showcase their work. The event features catwalk shows, exhibition stands as well as talks, masterclasses and workshops from leaders in the fashion industry. During the trip they had the chance to view a catwalk show from a leading University.
Students looked around the degree shows of many institutes and were able to look at portfolios, speak to the graduates and staff at the university stands. There was also chance to speak to Industry experts regarding the type of job opportunities available for graduates and the type of person that they are seeking for their vacancies. The trip was very inspirational to feed current projects, but also think about future aspirations and goals.
