On Friday 23 September, two of our GCU London students had the chance to experience the biggest fashion event of the season – London Fashion Weekend. Piuli Choudhury and Martha Rodriguez both had the opportunity to check out the catwalks, workshops and to meet designers and models.
Piuli won tickets to the event after entering a competition held by GCU London to provide feedback on September 2016 Induction week activities. She decided to take her friend and fellow GCU London student, Martha, along for the experience.
Piuli, an MSc International Fashion Marketing student, said: “The London Fashion Weekend is every girls dream come true.
Once we got to the gallery we were greeted by a red carpet and a photo session with a professional photographer.
It was a surreal experience as we got to meet many local successful designers, watch catwalks with front row seats and enjoy talks about the Queen’s famous wardrobe collection and learn techniques into perfecting our makeup skills.
I am looking forward to attending next year – thank you GCU London for this amazing experience!”
