LISAA Fashion Paris selected to take part in Graduate Fashion Week
LISAA Fashion Paris has been selected to participate in Graduate Fashion Week in London from 31st May to 3rd June, 2014. The school will be represented by Robert Ruiz Muñoz, third year fashion and textile design student.
A Demanding Competition
Graduate Fashion Week is organising the International Catwalk Competition 2014 in partnership with Talents Vogue Italia and Fashion Scout. It invites the most prestigious universities and fashion schools throughout the world to present the collections of their best graduates. Each school is allowed to present one collection only.
Presided by Sara Maino, Senior Fashion Editor of Vogue Italy, the jury is comprised of prestigious experts in the industry, notably teacher Wendy Dagworthy (Royal College Of Art), Suzy Menkes, Glenda Bailey, Alexandra Shulman, Alber Elbaz, Stefano Pilati, Giles Deacon, Victoria Beckham, Mary Katranzou, Clare Waight-Keller (Chloe), Joan Burstein (Browns) and Marigay McKee (Harrods).
The Prize: A Career Passport
The winning young designer will be awarded with a cheque for £1000. Their collection will be exhibited at Fashion Scout during London Fashion Week in September 2014.
An unrivalled platform for the promotion of new talent, Graduate Fashion Week seeks to bridge the gap between being awarded a qualification and arriving on the job market. It has helped designers such as Christopher Bailey, winner of the first Graduate Fashion Award, Stella McCartney, Giles Deacon, Matthew Williamson and Julien Macdonald to emerge on the fashion scene.
