Hello VFS followers! This LFW Vauxhall Fashion Scout is launching an exciting new initiative for exceptional talent - the Graduate Showcase.  Featuring a selection of the very best new talent to come out from and around Graduate Fashion Week, The Graduate Showcase features graduates from Central Saint Martins, London College of Fashion, Royal Academy of Art, Westminster, De Montfort and Kingston Universities.  
Internationally recognised as the home of new talent, Vauxhall Fashion Scout have scouted and selected these graduates from over 300 collections viewed during this June’s graduate shows.  

The graduates include: 
Anna Smit (RCA)
Charlotte Barry (LCF)
Helen Turner (RCA)
Kate Wallis (Westminster)
Nicola Morgan (RCA)
Parsha Gerayesh (Westminster)
Nova Chiu (LCF)
Patrick Li (RCA)
Steven Tai (CSM)
Umeromaan (De Montfort)
Victoria Spruce (RCA)
 
 The Graduate Showcase will take place on the opening day of London Fashion Week and features a curated selection of three outfits from their graduate collections, as styled by Guy Hipwell of Fashion156.com. Supported by the Mayor of London´s London Fashion Showcasing Fund the event will enable press and buyers attending LFW to meet the young designers and see their creative vision first hand.

 “My team and I saw over 300 graduate collections this June and were extremely excited by what we saw. Unfortunately many buyers and media were unable attend all the shows, so we decided to showcase a selection of the very best collections for them during LFW. It is important that the whole industry has the opportunity to see the future of British talent at the very start of their careers. 
A key element to this initiative is a bespoke mentoring programme for these highly talented graduates.  It is our objective to help them take the giant step from graduation to establishing their own creative businesses.” Martyn Roberts, Vauxhall Fashion Scout Founder. 
Vauxhall Fashion Scout is running intensive mentoring sessions featuring guest speakers from across the industry to provide key information on setting up a business, PR, Sales, branding, funding and production. The sessions will take the graduates through all aspects of setting up their own label and running a business.  
The Graduate Showcase will take place Friday 16th September, 11am – 3pm at Freemasons’ Hall, Vauxhall Fashion Scout´s permanent location.
