Designers to Watch at Graduate Fashion Week

The next big event to look forward to in the UK fashion calendar is in my opinion the most creative, uncensored and inclusive fashion week of all, Graduate Fashion Week baby! Now in it's 26th year, GFW is showcasing and awarding the most exciting young talent from the 4th-7th June in East London, and here are my favourite incedible new fashion designers to keep an eye on this season, whose garments I can't wait to see in person next month. Be sure to show your support on Instagram by following these young creatives using the hashtag #wearegraduatefashionweek.
