The 20 finalists of the 2018 Fashion Futures had the Summer School in a hot week. In 2 rooms of the University of East London the garments came to life.
FAD Fashion Futures is an award-winning, industry-focused fashion programme, which offers London teens a hands-on insight into the fashion industry, supported throughout by experienced fashion professionals. The programme fosters key professional skills including research, design, pattern cutting and garment construction, as well as developing participants’ confidence, motivation and creativity. Fashion Futures has been kick-starting creative careers since 2005, and we’re proud that our alumni include designers, pattern cutters, garment techs, buyers and product developers in companies including Tom Ford, Fila, River Island and Karen Millen – as well as acclaimed designer Grace Wales Bonner. We are especially proud of the many Fashion Futures graduates who return to the workshops to pass on their skills, knowledge and experience to the next generation. You can shop products by talented entrepreneurial Fashion Futures graduates in the FAD Showroom.
