Crown will work with the GFW team to plan, coordinate and bring together operations to ensure the night runs smoothly. 

The agency has secured Sony to sponsor the show, and the brand will provide its new 4K TV screens to enhance the front row experience.

GFW is considered to be the world’s leading event for fashion graduates. It includes a combination of interactive talks, catwalk shows, pop-ups, live photo shoots and exhibitions.

The awards will operate as a culmination of the week that was, and celebrate the work of graduate fashion designers. Judges will select winners based on design, innovation, originality and flair, and they will be awarded bursaries for both themselves and their universities. 

Casey Evans, executive producer at Crown, said: "Graduate Fashion Week is an amazing showcase of collections from diverse and incredibly creative graduates.

"Crown is honoured to be taking part in this year’s Awards Show as recognising and nurturing talent in any industry is something businesses should be involved in."

GFW was founded by Jeff Banks CBE, Vanessa Denza MBE and John Walford in an effort to help recent graduates attain employment within the fashion industry.
