Ready-to-Wear (14 - 19 year olds) - Summer 2019 Programme

Through a combination of years experience and listening to our students feedback, we've extended our course to include more highlights and opportunities for our 14-19 year old students to get to know their fashion family. In addition, there's a larger focus on experimental design and pattern cutting whilst building their fabric knowledge. Students will be given a comprehensive view of the fashion industry through exclusive trips, tours, talks from industry experts and masterclasses. To find out more, please visit our website.
