“I based my project on plants and flowers, so I bleached all of the material, and I tried to make it look like stems, and it kind of associates itself
FAD Fashion Futures is an award-winning, industry-focused fashion programme for creative Londoners aged 16-19. It has launched the careers of fashion professionals from designers to pattern cutters, garment techs, buyers and product developers. It has 3 parts:
1. Saturday Workshops (January-March). Our specialist tutors and industry mentors teach the fundamentals of fashion, from inspiration and design, through learning about fabrics and understanding your customer, to technical drawing, pattern cutting and constructing a toile.
2. Summer School (July) Selected students get the opportunity to participate in our intensive week of workshops to revise and construct their final looks for the catwalk.
3. Fashion Futures Final hits London Fashion Week in September, showcasing the youngest designers to show at Fashion Week.
We are proud of the many Fashion Futures graduates who return as volunteers to pass on their skills, knowledge and experience to the next generation.
