2016, FAD Projects, Fashion Futures

One week on from the Fashion Futures launch at the V&A, our young recruits head to Hackney and Lewisham for the start of practical FAD workshops.

This time of year we could all do with hibernating, which is why we take our hats off to the 90 teenagers and dedicated industry volunteers who joined us on Saturday for the first of nine workshops providing 16-19 year olds with an insight into the design process.

Hosted by our partner colleges Lewisham Southwark College and Hackney Community College, the project kicked off to an energetic start with sessions in experimental figure drawing and draping on the stand. It’s amazing what can be created with a piece of fabric and some carefully placed pins!

The Fashion Futures workshops will run for now until Saturday 19th March 2016. You can read more about this amazing project on the FAD website or follow FAD on twitter @fadcharity and Instagram @fad_charity for live updates.
