An award-winning charity, FAD strives for a more diverse, more inclusive fashion industry. We believe that talented young people should be able to progress and thrive, regardless of their personal circumstances, financial situation or ethnic background.
Our flagship project, Fashion Futures, brings young Londoners together with professionals from across the fashion industry, who pass on the knowledge, skills and experience needed to get a foot on the creative career ladder.
In 2019, 70 young creatives and 55 professional volunteers have participated in the programme. They looked at the relationship between fashion and the natural world to come up with ideas to create a meaningful fashion which is made to last.
At the 2019 Fashion Futures final, 20 of our most promising young designers, aged 17-22, will present their looks on the runway in London Fashion Week’s most uplifting show.
