***REGISTRATION FOR FASHION FUTURES 2013 IS NOW CLOSED***
Students from London and Manchester will begin the course by attending a study day at the V&A Museum in London on Saturday 19th January 2013.
Fashion Futures 2013 launched on Saturday 19th January at the V&A museum in South London.
Close to one hundred 16-18 year olds from 21 different boroughs across the capital turned up for the launch. They spent a productive day with the FAD team learning about the project and exploring the new fashion and furniture galleries; looking to environment and the architecture of everyday objects for design inspiration. Read more here.
The next step for the teen designers will be to design, pattern cut and construct their own unique garments in just ten weeks of practical fashion workshops. Follow their progress and see photos from the Saturday workshops on the FAD blog.
Watch the short film below to find out what our teenagers think of the Fashion Futures project.
FAD & GEORGE: GRADUATE FASHION WEEK
As well as sponsoring Fashion Futures 2013, George at Asda are headline sponsors of Graduate Fashion Week (GFW) – the largest showcase of fashion graduates in the world.
What does this mean for you? If you sign up to Fashion Futures 2013, you will have the opportunity to take part in mini-competitions and styling workshops for George, which may result in your work being displayed by George at Graduate Fashion Week 2013.
You can read more about the experience of last year's Fashion Futures students on the FAD blog.
At the end of the practical workshops an outside industry panel will select 20 of the most talented young people for the next stage of the project.
These finalists will take part in an FAD summer school in July, where they will have just five days to re-create their designs for the 2013 FAD Junior Awards final, held at London Fashion Week in September.
