Graduate Fashion Week appoints Chairman

Mark Newton-Jones, CEO of Mothercare, has been appointed Chairman of Graduate Fashion Week. He succeeds Rob Templeman who after three years as Chairman announced earlier this year his decision to step down from the board. Mark arrives at Graduate Fashion Week (GFW) with a wealth of experience gained during a career spanning more than 30 years in global fashion retail. Prior to joining Mothercare in 2014 Mark was Group CEO at sports retailer Shop Direct. Previously Mark spent 18 years at Next, where he held a variety of senior roles, including in his last five years, the Director responsible for the Next Directory. Mark’s new role as Chairman of Graduate Fashion Week will see him lead and develop the profile of the charitable event, raising awareness across the fashion industry and the general public. Mark will also look to further develop the format of the event, building on the huge success of GFW’s revamp in 2014 including its move to East London. Now in its 24th year, Graduate Fashion Week, sponsored by George at Asda, showcases the work of more than 1,000 talented students from 42 UK and International universities. The event will take place from 30 May to 2 June 201.
