bfcsponsorgfw.jpgGraduate Fashion Week (GFW) is hotting up again and as well as Claudia Schiffer joining this year's judging panel, there will also be a new award sponsored by the British Fashion Council (BFC).

The new award will be presented to the graduate who has achieved the highest result in the field of creative cutting. It will be presented by BFC chairman, Harold Tillman, at the GFW gala show.

"In sponsoring this award, we recognise the technical role as an integral part of design and applaud our design colleges for continuing to produce the most creative and technically talented designers and pattern cutters - the future stars of London Fashion Week," said Hilary Riva, chief executive of the BFC.

Graduate Fashion Week takes place from 8th June to 12th June, 2008. For further information, visit
