Tu at Sainsbury’s partners with Graduate Fashion Week

Graduate Fashion Week is partnering with the Tu at Sainsbury’s clothing brand for the second year running.

Following the success of last year’s partnership, the 2017 collaboration will see both a womenswear and menswear graduate receive a scholarship within the Tu design team. The graduates will also embark on a year-long mentorship with fashion designers Henry Holland and Oliver Spencer as they create a Graduate Fashion Week collection for Tu’s Spring/Summer 2018 range.

The winning graduates will both complete a paid 12-month placement with Tu’s design department, culminating in the launch of their own collection in-store. The winners will be coached by the in-house teams and gain insight into the fashion industry from buying though to design.

The mentoring with Holland and Spencer will include monthly meetings with the graduates and creative sessions to review the winner’s collection for Tu, as well as visits to the designers’ studios.

James Brown, director of commercial for Sainsbury’s, said: “It’s wonderful to be part of Graduate Fashion Week for another year as we deepen our commitment to supporting new design talent. Good luck to all graduates participating, we look forward to meeting you, viewing your collections and guiding you through your first foray in the fashion industry.”

As part of the continued partnership, Tu at Sainsbury’s will be present during Graduate Fashion Week and host a Tu hub within the sponsorship floor. This interactive space will be an area where graduates can visit with their portfolios to obtain advice and apply for recruitment opportunities directly from the Tu at Sainsbury’s team. There will also be a series of masterclasses.

Tu at Sainsbury’s will also be hosting talks within the GFW Talk Live! Studio. These will include ‘Gok Wan The Inside Story’ and ‘Gok Wan Panel Talk – The Truth on the Fashion Industry’.

Graduate Fashion Week will be taking place from 4 to 7 June 2017 at The Old Truman Brewery in London.
