Look out for a major design disruption: a new generation of international creative talent is about to be released at the Raffles College of Design and Commerce Graduate Exhibition and Runway Show, from 6pm, on Wednesday 6th December 2017.

The annual Raffles Graduate event unveils fresh and innovative ideas by young, up-and-coming creative talent. It features major project work across the fields of Fashion Design, Fashion Marketing, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Digital Media and Photography.  It is widely recognised by the industry as one of the most important events on the Sydney design calendar, and the Runway is a pre-show for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia.

This year, the Raffles graduating body features a United Nations of talent. Students hailing from Sudan, Northern Pakistan, Italy, Indonesia, Thailand, and even Ballina are displaying work destined to springboard career trajectories.

Key student story opportunities:

22-year-old Lily James, Fashion Design. Originally from Sudan, Lily came to Australia aged eight via Uganda and Kenya, before settling in Wollongong with her mother, ten brothers and one sister. Her fashion designs celebrate her African heritage, love of the Australian environment and the artist Jackson Pollock.

20-year-old Steve Harnacke, Photography. Originally from Italy, now living in Ryde, Steve’s work reflects a slick modernity and up-tempo love of fashion. His images would be right at home in Vanity Fair magazine.

21-year-old Shannon Clayworth, Fashion Marketing. A full scholarship student from Ballina, Shannon worked all through high school to support his sick mother and younger brother. He has interned at Vogue, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, and is now Fashion Editor at Lita Magazine. His graduate collection is a stunning collection of black and white portraits.

Raffles College of Design and Commerce is a unique education provider based in Parramatta, specialising in design and visual communication.
