Professor Andrew Groves, Course Leader for BA Fashion Design, was interviewed by Reuters and the Chinese broadcasting channel CCTV about London Fashion Week degree show 2019.

Speaking about the Fashion Course at Westminster and its links to the professional world, Professor Groves said: “Whatever we do on our Fashion course, it’s got to be true to what’s happening in industry so over the last two years, we’ve made sure our students go on internships internationally, that they’re designing in the international calendar, and this year as well as showing in London, they’re also doing a sale-room in Paris in order to cycle with the industry.”
