From 2001-2017, FAD Competition challenged fashion students to think outside the commercial box, looking to art, culture, science and society for inspiration.


Described by Vogue.com as an “undeniable springboard,”  FAD Competition garnered 7,000 entries and gave 208 catwalk finalists a platform at the very earliest stage of their design careers.


We’re proud to have partnered with 45 UK universities, brands including Missoni, Vivienne Westwood and Paul Smith, and institutions from V&A to Royal Opera House.
