Sainsbury's and Holly Fulton team up for GFW scholarship
British charity organisation Graduate Fashion Week, which showcases the works of over 1,000 of the very best students and graduates from universities around the world, has announced a new collaboration.
Tu at Sainsbury's, British supermarket Sainsbury's clothing brand, has created a scholarship for GFW that will see the winner get to create a womenswear collection for the brand. The winner will also get unprecedented access to fashion designer Holly Fulton, through a bespoke mentorship programme.
Fulton will hold a mentoring session for the winner in her studio, where they will discuss the winner's collection for Tu. In addition, the winner will be coached by Sainsbury's in-house team.
"We are delighted to work with Graduate Fashion Week and Holly Fulton through our mentorship programme which combines two of our passions, fashion and fostering emerging talent. Good luck to all graduates participating at Graduate Fashion Week this year, we look forward to viewing your collections and supporting your career in the fashion industry," said James Brown, Sainsbury’s Director of Non-Food Trading.
“I am excited to be involved with Sainsbury's Graduate Fashion Week mentorship scheme; when I started out I was lucky enough to be given lots of support from industry and engage with some key mentors who still guide me today. It’s great to be given the opportunity to be involved with a new talent and to hopefully help guide them through their first foray into industry and I look forward to working closely with the winner,” said Holly Fulton, Graduate Fashion Week patron.
Graduate Fashion Week takes place in London on June 5-8. The winner of the Graduate Fashion Week 25th Anniversary Tu Scholarship mentored by Holly Fulton will be announced on 8 June 2016.
