The collections produced by the class of 2016 were incredibly varied. The level of polish and maturity of design across the board was far beyond what we’d have expected from graduates…not to mention that almost every single panellist this year told us they found it very difficult to keep their selections to just 5 designers.

“I love seeing graduates collections – they’re invariably filled with passion, excitement and are generally less perturbed by the cynicism we can sometimes have in the industry (the reality of seeing things again and again – although both elements have their merit).

It’s what makes in continually fascinating and relevant. And this I believe is a big part of what our graduates do…” – Courtney Miller, Australian Fashion Chamber
