Don’t Ignore The Shop Floor

INTOFashion Campaign 2017

Pay Fair. Recognise Talent.

FAD are campaigning to make fashion retail a better place to be for young British graduates.

The short film below explores the economic and social benefits of progression from shop floor to head office and of paying the London Living Wage, with testimonies from young people from the INTOFashion and fashion industry insiders who champion change.

Support the movement to recognise the talent of skilled young creatives working in retail by sharing the film link across your social media platforms.

The INTOFashion Programme

Overview

Breaking into the creative industries isn’t easy.

Many graduates take badly paid jobs after university to tide them over while they try to get a foot on the first rung of the creative career ladder. They find themselves stuck in dead end, low paid work which doesn’t make use of their skills, talent and experience.

Sponsored by Trust for London the INTO Fashion programme supports graduates aged 18-30 who find themselves in this position. If this sounds like you drop us a line: joanne@fad.org.uk

We hold industry masterclasses, networking events and 1-2-1 mentoring sessions to support progress into better-paid, and more fulfilling fashion careers.
