Warehouse and BFC to offer graduate placements

Warehouse has joined with The British Fashion Council (BFC) to offer one design graduate the chance to have their designs produced and sold in the young fashion chain’s stores.

Course tutors involved in BFC’s Colleges Council will submit the strongest portfolios from this graduating year for consideration to the judges. The winner will have pieces from their graduate collection produced and sold in up to eight Warehouse stores across the country during London Fashion Week in September. They will also be offered a sixth-month design placement at Warehouse after graduating.

Judges, including Hilary Riva, chair of the British Fashion Council’s Development Committee, and Paula Reed style director of Grazia, will look for outstanding design that suits “the Warehouse woman”.

Two runners up will win a two-week work experience placement and will have their work and profile featured on the Warehouse website.

Sue Vyse, brand director of Warehouse, said “Warehouse is excited to be launching this competition as we are always on the look out for fresh new talent with innovative and creative ideas.”

The closing date for entries is  May 20. For more details go to www.britishfashioncouncil.com.

The Warehouse Design Competition was launched as part of the 25th anniversary of the BFC and London Fashion Week.
