HANDS-ON FASHION INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE FOR 16-19 YEAR OLDS
JANUARY – MARCH 2017
On FAD’s renowned course of Saturday workshops, you’ll be supported by specialist tutors and industry mentors to learn the fundamentals of fashion – from research and design to pattern cutting and garment construction. You’ll produce a sketchbook and portfolio pages, as well as an original paper pattern and toile. Selected participants will be invited to progress to the Fashion Futures summer school and showcase their work on the London Fashion Week runway in September 2017.
