River Island presents Graduate Fashion Week

Our sales team work closely with their designers and make regular presentations to our customers.

Our team of talented knitwear designers work closely with our customers to create original, innovative and commercial designs.

The designers work directly with our team of knitting technicians which ensure both accuracy and speed of development. The designers work from a comprehensive in house yarn stock including Acrylic, Cotton, Metallic, Wool, blended and fancy yarns of all counts.

Working with the latest knitting technology designs include, Intarsia, mixed gauges, stitch interest, shaping and printed knitwear.

The design team work closely with trimming suppliers and always have an exciting selection of buttons, poppers, zips, beads and trims. We can also offer embroidery and heat applied studs.

Inspiration is taken from exhibitions such as Pitti Filati, Spin Expo, WGSN and regular shopping trips in Europe and Asia.

Our designers use yarns sourced from the best producers in Europe and Turkey and our suppliers regularly send new developments to BHM.
