FAD has been running inspiring workshops with creative young people since 2000.

We pride ourselves on delivering innovative, industry-focused experiences, where young people develop their creativity, gain technical training and increase their transferable skills, including communication, confidence and resilience.  We bring together young people from diverse backgrounds, fostering team work and cross-collaboration.

We work in partnership with schools, colleges and universities, as well as fashion industry partners and London’s cultural venues.  Our projects complement and enhance the curriculum, opening up potential careers opportunities and preparing young people to succeed in the creative sector.

Our workshops explore fashion-industry specific topics including research, design development, pattern cutting, sewing, customer awareness and careers guidance, as well as wider social and cultural themes such as Fairtrade, science, heritage and identity.
