Graduate Fashion Week 2014

Limerick  School  of  Art  and  Design  participation  at  Graduate  Fashion  Week  was  a  great  success again  this  year. The  new  venue  at  the  Truman Brewery  in  the  busy  hub  of   East  London  was  the perfect  location, surrounded  by  the  sights  and sounds  of  Brick  Lane  and  Spitafields  Market.

Feedback  from  industry  and  education  to  our  students  work  was  very  positive  and  a  lot  of contacts  were  made. It  has  been  a  fantastic  opportunity  for  staff  and  students  to  build  on  the experience  from  last  year  and  further  cement  the  reputation  of  the  fashion  course  on  an International platform.

We  were  thrilled  this  year  to  be  invited  to  participate  in  the  International Show  where  we  were  one  of  13  other  International  colleges  showing,  from  countries  such  as China, Australia, Sweden  and  France. The  work  of   graduate  Olga  Profitukina  was  chosen  to  represent  the  strengths  of  the course.
