In partnership with the British Fashion Council, the Fashion&Business Saturday Club introduces young people to the breadth of creative opportunities available in this dynamic sector. From trend-forecasting and embroidery, to visual merchandising and styling, the Fashion&Business Saturday Club is a great first step to gaining an insight into the industry.
Through the programme, Club members develop practical and technical skills as well as key transferable skills, such as creative problem-solving and business acumen.
Fashion&Business Saturday Clubs cover multiple areas and techniques, from materials technology and trend-forecasting to fashion journalism and retail management. Clubs also look at the fashion calendar, and consider ethical issues such as sustainable sourcing and intellectual property. Masterclasses and workshops with top fashion professionals and companies give an up-to-the-minute picture of the workings of the industry and its current opportunities.
Whether you have ambitions to be a designer or want to work as a buyer or textile technologist, the fashion industry is one of the largest employers in the UK’s creative sector.
