Two years ago we snapped Kingston Course Director Mo Ali at Graduate Fashion Week, and we spotted him again outside EC2 with some rather fetching trainers.

Now working as a brand consultant Ali is still rocking navy (can you ‘rock’ navy?) in a neutral outfit. The rich-coloured scarf peps up all the blue tones, and his Mihara Yasuhiro trainers are the same as his colleague Andrew Abi sported all those years ago. Small world!

Over at Catwalk Queen we’re gearing up for Graduate Fashion Week, we’ve been profiling the progression of graduates and reading their tips for getting into the industry. Russell Williams went to University of Derby and has been the menswear t-shirt designer at River Island since 2008.

How did you find getting a fashion job after graduation?
This is my first real job since graduation, and it’s a continuation of a work placement I got into at River Island.

What tips/advice would you give to students who want to get into the industry?
Be pro-active, email, phone and knock on their doors, be confident, sign up to as many agencies as possible. Also work experience and internships help a lot.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years time?
Not too sure, the world as they say is your oyster!

Sarah Senouci’s collection consisted of impeccably-finished English summer attire gently infused with retro Americana. Stand By Me met Brideshead Revisited as romantic foppishness combined with dusty farmboy.

Check and and madras shirts were accessorised with bandanas and a windcheater gave a modern touch. Trousers were either of the slouchy Oxford Bags variety or aristocratic britches.

GFW street style: tasselled loafers and neutrals

By admin on June 9th, 2008

I’ve been literally running around Earl’s Court trying to get pictures of the best-dressed men at GFW for you.

When I spied Roberto Alessandro’s tasselled loafers I knew I had to include him in our street style selection. Roberto is 21 and a 1st year Fashion Styling student at Salford. The aforementioned loafers come from Brick Lane and together with the polo shirt and OTT gold chain makes for a great look that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

We’re liveblogging from the tents at this year’s Graduate Fashion Week, apologies for the image quality here is the verdict from the catwalks. The Rochester students presented a very strong menswear collection this year, (from left to right)Minne Muztuccari kicked things off with a range of deconstructed jodphurs with sliky jersey panels and built-up ruffled jackets.
Elinor Seager used sportswear and sleepwear influences teaming tracksuit-inspired cropped trousers with coral windcheaters. Suits were given a youthful twist with piping along the pockets and seams.
Pastel colours and candy stripes continued the carefree sporty theme as Elizabeth Render sent models down the catwalks in oversized voluminous shirts and dropped crotch trousers.
