The Graduate Fashion Week International Residency Award gives outstanding graduates participating in Graduate Fashion Week a chance to undertake a residency working with one of our overseas fashion networks, including local designers, universities, craftspeople and others in the fashion industry.
The winners immerse themselves in the rich visual and craft heritage of the host country. The residents are asked to record their journey and upon completion of the residency present a concept for a collection.
The annual Award provides winners with all travel costs plus a grant to produce a capsule collection and the opportunity to showcase the work at events like the International Fashion Showcase.
