Solange Knowles, Gwen Stefani, Dakota Fanning and Charlie Chaplin were some of the muses that inspired these show-stopping pieces

Check out what the teens think about George …

“I think that George is really awesome! The stuff that FAD offer is great and gives a lot of young people many opportunities to prosper.

From taking part in the industry day I got to learn more about the different jobs at George in particular the design process of how a designer puts out a clothing range each season” Seada, Fashion Futures 2014 participant

FAD Volunteer Karmen, gives her views on George’s collaborative projects with FAD:

“It gives a chance for young people to think outside of the box and really tap in to their creative skills. George getting involved with the projects that FAD run really helps young people get a insight into the industry and what it is like to work in the fashion industry”

A massive thank you to George for sponsoring FAD’s customising workshops and a special thank you to Cecilia Colussi for leading the photo shoot.
