Every December, Wallpaper* issues its renowned Graduate Directory in print and online, which highlights the year’s best graduates from various design arenas, including fashion, design and architecture. By working together to find the designers who most exemplify talent, skill and innovation in fashion design, Wallpaper* and NJAL were able to create an extraordinary assemblage. Taking the world’s most esteemed design schools and NJAL’s extensive database featuring over 7,000 fashion designers into account, Wallpaper* and NJAL selected a shortlist of 50 former students from 36 schools in 22 countries around the globe including Denmark, Mexico, Croatia and China. With further research from both parties, 13 of the most outstanding graduates from 2011 were selected to showcase in the magazine’s critical round up of tomorrow’s most promising talents.
To celebrate and honour the graduates who have been selected for the directory, NJAL is proud to introduce the Wallpaper* Grads subsection of the Online Shop. Taking a new spin on the Christmas shopping experience, NJAL is offering shoppers access to some of the most exclusive and highly sought after designs. The Wallpaper* Grads shop on NJAL will include a carefully selected collection of pieces from each fashion designer featured in the Graduate Directory.
NJAL aims to steer emerging fashion designers towards success and act as a media liaison. NJAL is honoured to be working in partnership with the prestigious publication to give designers exposure and introduce them in to the design world.
