Ever wondered what it's really like to study for a fashion degree? What do you learn? How do you get a job within the fashion industry after your degree? Northumbria caught up with some of our students as they showcased their final year projects at Graduate Fashion Week and got the lowdown on how Northumbria had helped prepare them for life in industry.

The School of Design at Northumbria University has an established reputation at Graduate Fashion Week, with our students winning over 40 awards in the last five years, including New Designer of the Year, the Fashion Innovation Award and, for the last three years running, the Ethical Award. Work is showcased from across all 3 of our undergraduate fashion courses; Fashion, Fashion Design and Marketing, and Fashion Communication.

2015 marked an important time for fashion at Northumbria as it saw our sixtieth year of graduates from our Fashion course. Many of our Fashion graduates now populate design studios, buying offices, publishing houses and creative agencies all over the world. Northumbria University graduates have gone on to take senior roles with internationally renowned design houses including Louis Vuitton, Ralph Lauren, Chloe, Donna Karan, Abercrombie and Fitch and Nike.

Graduate Fashion Week
Graduate Fashion Week is the world’s leading event for fashion graduates and in 2015 was held at The Old Truman Brewery, within the heart of East London's creative quarter.

Showcasing the work of over 1,000 graduates from the most influential and inspiring UK and international universities, Graduate Fashion Week represents the future of creative design talent. In 2015 it consisted of 22 catwalk shows, extensive exhibitions from over 40 Universities, a number of live talks and workshops from leading industry professionals, mentoring, photo studio and much more.

An unrivalled platform for the promotion of new talent, it bridges the gap between graduation and employment and is responsible for launching the careers of some of the most successful designers of our time including Christopher Bailey, who was the winner of the first ever Graduate Fashion Week Gold Award, Stella McCartney, Giles Deacon, Matthew Williamson and Julien Macdonald.
