In style: Graduate Fashion Week Gold award winner Jessica Au with models wearing her menswear collection


Graduate fashion week is a fight to the death - so what does it take to succeed in style? Three industry experts give their tips for the top.



So you want to work in fashion? Why wouldn’t you. It is the hottest career around and we are a nation obsessed. When we’re not shopping for clothes we are watching clothes on Project Catwalk, Mary Queen of Shops, Gok Wan’s How To Look Good Naked, Ugly Betty, and those original fashionistas Trinny & Susannah.

Last week's Graduate Fashion Week showed just how glamorous it all can be. A roll call of fashion's big hitters perched front row at Wednesday night's Gala awards ceremony to sip champagne and cheer on the design stars of the future.

Supermodels Claudia Schiffer, Agyness Deyn and Erin O'Connor; designers Julien Macdonald, Gareth Pugh and Henry Holland, plus a gaggle of girls-about-town led by Pixie Geldof, were all there to see Jessica Au, from Ravensbourne College, scoop the prestigious River Island Gold Award for her brightly printed menswear collection - and bag the massive £20,000 cheque.
