Topshop, Topman & BFC announce
Graduate Design Programme winners

High street fashion retailers Topshop and Topman have announced the winners of the Graduate Design Programme in partnership with the BFC Colleges Council. The latest initiative supports graduate talent, with the inaugural award winners including Jessica Herndlhofer from Huddersfield University, who won the Topshop prize; and Jonathan Douglas from Glasgow School of Art, who won the Topman prize. The Graduate Design Programme offers the two students a 12 month paid internship at Topshop and Topman respectively. This is the third year the brands have partnered with the British Fashion Council on a graduate initiative, which reinforces their on-going support of emerging talent. Students were invited to submit a minimum of one mood board that demonstrates strong commercial awareness and understanding of the Topshop or Topman customer. From this mood board, applicants designed a 15 piece capsule collection that fully encapsulates their theme, showing key silhouettes, fabrics and colour choices.
