Graduate Fashion Week-Menswear

Graduate Fashion Week was launched in 1991 and is a forum to showcase the very best BA Graduate fashion design talent in the UK. Each June Graduate Fashion Week stages a static exhibition showcasing the work of some 50 universities across 52 courses, and approximately 22 university fashion shows. The prestigious Gala Show and Awards presentation takes place on the penultimate night.GFWRiver Island gives menswear's bright young things a chance to shine.

Highly commended meanwhile was Hannah Taylor of Ravensbourne College of Design and Communication for her literally brilliant knitwear, with brightly coloured balaclavas and a giant guinea pig jumper - genius.

The deserved winner was Mehmet Ali of Ravensbourne University for a cool collection of pastel-coloured tailoring with contrast panels, loose yet structured silhouettes and even matching luggage - technically impressive yet eminently wearable.
