Graduation to most of us meant rented gowns trimmed with itchy fake fur, worn in the summer sun while queuing up to be photographed holding a rolled-up piece of paper. These images then duly haunt you forever, gazing down from proud relatives' mantelpieces. But for fashion graduates, it's a very different story: the only gowns involved are worthy of the red carpet, and pictures are taken by catwalk pros rather than "watch the birdie" amateurs.
