The Victoria and Albert Museum’s Fashion Festival is free to everyone between the ages of 16 and 24. The event will include numerous workshops as well as talks and demonstrations featuring famous designers and fashion brands.
Begin the day with an overview of careers in the fashion industry – learn more about the opportunities available to you and gain some valuable advice about securing internships and jobs. If you’d like to start up a business of your own, there’s a talk straight after that would be right up your street! Pick up some tips on how to get funding and what it takes to develop an online presence.
Brands such as ASOS are on hand to offer wisdom regarding marketing and journalism while there are two MAC Cosmetics Master Classes where Senior Artist Rachel O’Donnell will discuss all the latest trends and techniques. There’s a talk from Henry Holland about his journey in the fashion industry – from collaborating with Levi Strauss and Debenhams to his future plans with Vogue UK. Improve your knowledge by indulging in some taster workshops: whether your area of expertise is shoe design or fashion photography, there’s something for everyone.
