Recent graduates and current students from the University of Westminster Fashion Design BA Hons will be showcasing their designs during London Fashion Week from 14 September to 18 September 2012.
Claire Barrow, who graduated in June 2012 and already boasts Jessie J and Rihanna as clients, will present her collection at LFW in a highly anticipated debut. She is one of only two upcoming designers selected by Lulu Kennedy and a panel of industry experts including Sarah Mower and Francesca Burns to be part of Fashion East, a prestigious non-profit initiative which aims to promote new talents every season.

Fellow student Mary Benson will show her new collection for VVVintage, the online sustainable fashion house, with a live installation at Somerset House. Her capsule collection, including a range of luxury sportswear embellished with vinyl and created using second-hand materials, has already been worn by a number of fashion icons including Rita Ora and was featured in the September issue of Vogue.
