Beckmans School of Design x Paris Fashion Week
The graduate collections, which are now coming to Paris, were shown for the first time in a high-profile screening at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern in May. Since then, the collections have appeared in fashion editorials as well as on artists. Beckman's new graduate designers have been awarded several scholarships from NK, Swedish Fashion Association/Stockholm Fashion Week, Swedish Fashion Council/TEKO, H&M, Lindex and Design Sweden, among others.

Showroom at the Institut Suédois
From 29 September to 2 October, the collections will be shown at the Institut suédois in Paris. Between these dates, there will be an opportunity to meet all the designers and take a closer look at the graduation collections and portfolios in a showroom at the Institut suédois, 10 rue Payenne in the Marais.
Working on the graduation collections, students complete a full design process, exploring their approach as designers; from researching and formulating a concept to actually making the garments that illustrate what they want to say as creators and how they want to contribute to the fashion scene. The graduate course is led by Pär Engsheden, Programme Director for Fashion.
In addition to Beckmans Design School's presentation of the graduate collections, a number of Swedish fashion brands will be on display, including Beckmans alumni Lars Wallin Couture and Rita Roslin for Streamateria.
Saveja Awzel, Alice Svensson Brostedt, Desirée Bjurinder Fritzon, Kevin Nilsson, Teodor Warpe, Samuel Westerberg and Thomas Wieser.
The project is made possible through close collaboration with the Swedish Fashion Association and the Swedish Institute in Paris with support from Stockholm Fashion District, DS Automotives and Steamery Stockholm. The project is produced and curated by Annika Berner.
Swedish Secrets is part of the Swedish Design Movement, an export and investment strategy that promotes sustainable design and unites actors in Swedish design, fashion and architecture. The Swedish Design Movement is led by the Swedish Institute in cooperation with the Swedish product design, Swedish Architects, the Swedish Fashion Association and the Wood and Furniture Industries.
