If you like to be the first to spot the next big thing, a unique collaboration between Graduate Fashion Week and George at Asda gives you a chance to own a bit of fashion history in the making.

Le Thuy Le Thi was recipient of the GFW 'People's Choice Award' last year, voted for by viewers of ITV's This Morning. Her collection was entitled 'Afternoon Tea', and combined the idea of English afternoon tea with the ornate floral designs of Chinese pottery - a unique twist on 'East Meets West'.

Following her win, Le Thuy worked with the team at George to turn one of her designs into a dress that would sell in stores and online. The above illustration became the below dress - what else but a a twist on the classic tea dress, taking the more outrageous double-layered maxi from the catwalk show and making it simpler for everyday wear.

The dress is due to hit the George website any day now, and will retail at a ridiculously reasonable £18.

Graduate Fashion Week 2012 takes place from Sunday 10th to Wednesday 13th June at Earls Court 2 in London.
