Although FAD believes in having dreams, we don’t do the fluffy kind. We are about giving young people a ‘real’ insight into the fashion industry making them aware of the breadth of careers available, and giving them the tools and experience to get ahead.
We don’t believe in a one size fits all approach either. We work with young people to analyse their strengths and interests and encourage them to look at roles they have never even considered; from buying or merchandising, to garment technology or print design.
FAD offers regular careers events to young people – from r talks and masterclasses to behind the scenes industry visits to brands such as George at Asda, River Island, Marks and Spencer, WGSN and John Lewis. Our career surgeries support teenagers with choosing future education options, CVs and portfolios, while our real and online community of young people share peer advice and inside information.
Through our projects many young people have benefited from industry links and progressed into the creative industries.
