My project is to run a series of taster sessions for Fashion Designers, Makeup Enthusiats, Hair and Beauty industries. The projects aim is to bring awareness of talent within Southeast London Peckham, including the disadvantaged, inclusion of young people and adults who wish to pursue a career in fashion and have no relevant qualifications. The aim is to showcase all involved by hosting a community fashion show that will be a prominent yearly event recognised alongside London Fashion Week for the Peckham Community providing new opportunities for social depraved areas in need of support,
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Acknowledging unsigned talent of young people who may not be able to support themselves for higher education to seek a career in fashion. Personal experience of the difficulties pursuing a career as a Makeup Artist and how to be recognised professionally and build good industry contacts and business relationships. One of the benefits to young people is with the right support they are able to take their interests further but requires dedication, the workshops are taster sessions that are unique with direct contacts from industry. Mentors, and clients that have agreed to offer support have a renowned recognition within the Hair & Fashion industries impacting Hair creatives, Stylists, Models, Photographers, giving participants doing sessions first hand experience as well as Theory Training with an end of session visual presentation for sponsors, guests.
Steps to get it done:
Graduate Designers Emerging Designers with no educational background Designers who have an interest in sustainable fashion Creatives that have an interest for Arts and Cultral activities
