London, June 21, 2011 (Global Fashion Wire) - Is Commercial Viability The Key To Success For Fashion Graduates?

As we prepare for the spring/summer 12 ready-to-wear season to commence we wet our appetites with the various annual graduate events that introduce a fresh batch of talent to the fashion industry. Graduate Fashion Week brings together the UK's BA students at the vast Earls Court venue with a static exhibition and a packed schedule of runway shows. We were in attendance for the grand gala day and were astounded by the commercial sensibilities of 2011's, industry aware graduates.

Understated and viable looks refreshed the runways yet retained the creative excitement that makes graduate collections so special. Gold Award winner Rory Langdon's accomplished knitwear collection pushed a sleek silhouette and a cool industrial look, highlighted through metallic embellishments, exposed zips and cinch clip straps.

A blend of reptilian prints, chunky cable knits and corsetry earned Dominique Kral the Zandra Rhodes Catwalk Textile Award while understated tailoring with a romantic sense of history bagged the Menswear award for Felix Chabluk Smith. The Graduates and visitors proved just as creative with their own ensembles sporting a host of inspiration looks playing with volume, matt and shine combinations and customised finishes.
