Many of you reading this post today will have taken part in FAD’s Fashion Futures project as a teenager. Perhaps you have made it to uni thanks to FAD, or may even have your first job in the fashion industry. FAD has helped over 8,000 young people to kick-start their creative careers and you could be next.
Fashion Futures 2016 has officially launched on the FAD website and we are looking out for talented 16-19 year olds to sign up to our fashion workshops starting in January.
You don’t have to be the next Alexander McQueen. You just need to be interested in a creative career and be willing to dedicate your Saturdays to it.
The first round of Fashion Futures workshops for 16-19 year olds will launch at the V&A Museum in South Kensington on Saturday 16th January 2016.
The launch day is followed by 10 weeks of industry led, fashion workshops on Saturday mornings covering everything from initial research and garment design to technical drawing, pattern cutting and constructing a finished toile. The project also includes an industry visit to the George at Asda headquarters in Lutterworth and a fashion screen printing workshop.
How does that sound? We haven’t even mentioned the best bit yet…thanks to sponsorship from George at Asda and Natwest we have a huge number of free workshop places available for teenagers who really need them. So there is nothing stopping you.
