So Alberta Ferretti is in London today! She is here to act as the International member of the jury for the 19th River Island Gold Award – taking place NOW at Earls Court.
The Italian designer, known for her gorgeously feminine designs and red carpet gowns said ”I am excited to be part of this amazing event that is the Graduate Fashion Week: young designers that graduate from British Schools always stand out for their freedom of expression and passion for research. They are always innovative and contemporary in their creativity, adding special value to Fashion Teams. I regularly hunt for new talents within British colleges, bringing their special skills to my studio in Italy.”
The River Island Gold Award is presented to the best talent found from ten finalists chosen at Graduate Fashion Week, which showcases the best talent from the best of British fashion colleges (which, as we know, are the best in the world). Previous judges have included Christopher Bailey and Hussein Chalayan.
