The new faces to join this year's judging panel at Graduate Fashion Week 2012 are Christopher Bailey of Burberry and Daphne Guinness. The duo have hopped on board an esteemed panel of judges which also includes fashion journalist icon, Suzy Menkes, and Fiona Lambert from George at Asda, who are the title sponsors of this year's GFW.

They will help judge the highly sought-after £20,000 George Gold Award.

But that's not all...

Other industry luminaries who have generously donated their time to help nurture and mentor Britain's future fashion designers are Matthew Williamson, Mary Katrantzou, Jefferson Hack, Julien Macdonald, Mark Fast, John Rocha, Lorraine Candy and many more.

Graduate Fashion Week helps to celebrate the work of over 1,000 of the UK's top BA degree students representing over 39 universities. The event is open to the public and as always draws much interest from the fashion industry as well as from us here at Catwalk Queen, who have been long-time supporters of Graduate Fashion Week which this year marks its 21st anniversary.

Did you know that GFW is a charity and receives no support from the government? Which is why buying tickets to attend a catwalk show or visit the GFW exhibition is so important.

Graduate Fashion Week will be held from Sunday 10th to Wednesday 13th June. Purchase tickets to the catwalk shows here. Or find out more about GFW via
