FASHION: GFW University Of East London

GFW had always been one if my favourite events on the fashion calendar. Student work is always fresh and exciting, free from the commercial binding of real world design.

Krasimira Ivanova Stoyeneva had in my opinion the strongest collection (featured image) and Here are a few pics from the other collections I liked … Continue reading FASHION: GFW University Of East London
