This year is an exciting one for creative charity FAD. Based in Hackney, east London we will be right at the centre of this summer’s very ‘British’ Olympic and Jubilee celebrations.
We are also very proud to be sponsored by one of the UK largest retailers George at Asda, who are supporting Fashion Futures 2012 students across London and Manchester.
These two elements came together recently in a one off re-styling and customising workshop organised by FAD in collaboration with George. Inspired by London 2012 and the Jubilee celebrations, 10 London teenagers took up the challenge to create and style their own ‘Best of British’ looks using garments donated by George.
The Fashion Futures 2012 stylists spent a day in the FAD design studio with racks of fantastic fashion samples, boxes of trimmings and a few hardy Bernina sewing machines. After they completed their re-inventions, they took street shots to feature on the FAD blog and send back to the designers at George HQ in Leicester.
Look out for interviews with our aspiring stylists and street shots of their finished looks coming soon to the FAD blog.
