We support young people who are completing their Arts Award. Students in the past have challenged themselves to design and make an item of clothing/experimental garment and have utilised the trips, tours and industry speakers we provide to complete their Bronze, Silver and Gold Arts Award.

Below you will find a short overview of the three programmes we are running during the summer in 2019 and how we can support students whilst they’re with us. Alternatively, you can get in touch with our team for more information.

“It was an amazing fashion experience! Would love to come back next year!”

We've created this course to include younger fashionistas with a focus on having fun, creating, designing and sewing in the studio. This workshop is perfect for those not yet old enough for our 10 day programme, who'd love to learn about fashion and design. To find out more, please visit our homepage.

“The Summer Fashion School was an incredibly special experience that I was so blessed to be apart of. It was everything that I could have dreamed it to be. I had no idea that something so perfect to meet my absolute passion for fashion existed or that I could meet so many new people with the same interests. Thank you so much to my fashion family for everything!!”

Hannah S – France

Ready-to-Wear (age 14-19)

28 July - 6 August 2019 (10 days)
Residential and non-residential options
Additional extras available
Fees starting from £1,248 each

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. Why not book our afternoon tea option at Harrods and The Berkeley to make this an even more memorable experience? To find out more, please visit our homepage.

“The school has accomplished so much more than just teaching me how to design; I’ve learnt a great amount about the fashion industry and the different roles in it. The amazing people there (both the staff and students) make the experience very fun and enjoyable whilst learning a lot. I’ve been given so many incredible opportunities that I would never find anywhere else – especially at a young age. Attending helped me decide that fashion is what I want to do in the future”
