Rebecca Wilson wins the Christopher Bailey, GOLD at Graduate Fashion Week, London, 2018. With a jackpot prize of £10,000 and a fabulous start to her Career.

Graduate Fashion Week brings together over 40 Universities across the globe. It's an incredible event, offering a new generation of fledgling Fashion designers a forum to present their BA Fashion portfolio's to the Industry, and of course the worlds Press. It's truly is a celebration of unencumbered creativity!..from which many of the worlds biggest names in Fashion are born.

This year we interviewed the talented Rebecca Wilson, a graduate from Bournemouth University. Her passion for Fashion is evident in the depth of her portfolio, and her attention to detail astounding. A shining star of the future, and we wish her every success in her design journey.

We asked Rebecca a few Questions:

What inspired your collection?       

My collection tells the story of a Victorian working class family based on the photographs taken by August Sander and Horace Warner. The textiles in this collection Use a combination of modern and traditional techniques to recreate the look of pre loved passed down clothing that has forged its own rich history.

Your passion for fashion? I think fashion should have a narrative, a story or a message behind each collection, whether it be a personal story that allows people to express emotion or a message that needs to be shared with the world to bring about change. I am a strong believer of making clothing last. We live in a world where people have no relationship to their clothes and therefore getting rid of an item is too easy. Whereas, I believe garments should be cherished and a celebration of craftsmanship.

What it means to win the gold award? I am still so overwhelmed, winning the award has given me a huge platform to launch my work, and it has allowed me to share my designs with industry experts I could have only dreamed off.

And what’s next for Rebecca? I have really enjoyed the whole process of creating my collection, from concept development, design, through to textile creation and final manufacture, therefore I am excited to take on whatever opportunities arise, and gain experience in the industry.

It's clear that Generation Z have a fresh approach to Fashion. Seeking to create sustainable clothing that's both viable and ecological. As the Catwalks for this season come to a close, i can't help but rejoice in the responsible attitude to sustainability witnessed in this years graduates!...

Well done Rebecca, your talent, vision and creativity stand you in good stead for a vibrant career!...[Round of Applause]
