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!
