The FAD team have been busy running workshops all over London throughout the month of July. Last week we were with thirty five 15 year-olds at the Fashion Retail Academy for ‘Fashion Active’, a joint project from FAD and Wallis.
FAD & Wallis: ‘Fashion Active’ Customising Plimsolls, a set on Flickr.
It was an incredible few days and we have lots to share from the experience but as this week will see the official start of the Olympics, we thought we would start with some sports themed street style from our teen designers.
Part of the 5 day ‘Fashion Active’ course included a session on customising plimsolls. Wallis provided our young designers with a blank canvas, while FAD brought inspiration, fabric pens, glue & trimmings into the mix.
We had an incredible team of volunteers from the Wallis design department on hand to lend their expertise, and the results were some truly covetable soles!
