Creativity Works – Fashion Programme
Creativity Works was an industry specific pre-employment training programme with work placements across the fashion industry. It has been a really successful programme with 30 young people previously not in employment, training or education successfully moving from training to placements with a great outlook for their ongoing progression. As well as taking the participants on a fantastic trip to Paris to see the Jean Paul Gaultier’s Couture show.
Shante, 23, told us that the greatest experience was to meet the designer Jean Paul Gaultier.
With the development of the new Fashion Hub in Hackney, which will provide the growth borough with an environment where new young designers can work and offer employment opportunities, Creativity Works: Fashion aims to set a good standard for how young people can be involved in the growth of the area’s fashion industry.
