2 day Fashion Masterclass

Get into the Fashion Industry

Breaking into the fashion industry isn’t easy. Fashion Forward believes that talented, hardworking people should be able to access a career in fashion, regardless of their background or economic circumstances. Fashion Forward is an inclusive fashion programme that offers a hands-on insight into the fashion industry.

Our tutors have over twenty years of industrial and educational experience in the fashion industry. Working in schools, merchandising, fashion buying, television and production.

We know that people may lack the confidence and experience needed to access both education and a possible career in retail and fashion related jobs. Fashion Forward has devised a series of workshops and courses to help build confidence, self-esteem and a fashion portfolio to help break into the fashion industry.

Through mentoring, master classes and local retailers, Fashion Forward’s program equips people with an understanding and network they need to move into further education, volunteer positions, paid employment and more fulfilling and sustainable careers in the fashion and retail industry.

Through our programme, all participants get the chance to fulfil their potential within a friendly learning environment.
