In 2001, Jeff Banks set up the charity Graduate Fashion Week, along with Vanessa Denza and John Walford to unify both Uk and International universities to “create a stronghold for the creative industries.” It boasts 22 Catwalk shows each year, with presentations, live talks and workshops featuring leading names from the fashion industry.
