Graduate Fashion Foundation has announced Graduate Fashion Week is to celebrate its 30th anniversary at a new home at Coal Drops Yard in King’s Cross, London.

Taking place between 12-18 June 2021, Graduate Fashion Week will use the location and venues to create digital live streamed content and host hybrid events to showcase the work of upcoming creative talents from UK & International universities.

At the heart of Coal Drops Yard is Samsung KX, the Hub of Innovation. Graduate Fashion Foundation and Samsung KX confirmed they are to continue a successful partnership to champion talent with the experience space celebrating culture, community and ground-breaking thinking.


Central to the GFW activity, Samsung KX will host an exhibition of inspiring student designs amplified with virtual displays on Samsung latest technology and be home to an Industry Private View, giving the new graduates the valuable visibility they need. The exclusive industry event will showcase the brightest graduate fashion talent across 26 fashion specialisms from the Class of 2020.

GFF President Hilary Alexander OBE said: "Once again COVID-19 restrictions are creating huge obstacles for our Class of 2021, greatly impacting their final year of studies. However, just as we have been for the last 30 years, Graduate Fashion Week will be there as their studies conclude to ensure their work is celebrated and elevated to the industry they aspire to work in.

"Their resilience and creativity at a time of adversity is something we should all be looking forward to celebrating. We look forward to be able to bring Graduate Fashion Week to its audiences in a new and innovative way with our hybrid event and live streaming opportunities."
