Fashion Education Programmes for Schools and Community Groups

At The Fashion School, we are passionate about the transformative power of education. We empower young people, by giving them the knowledge and tools to help make a positive and much-needed difference in the fashion industry. Our programmes are hands-on and offer engaging ways for you to inspire change.

We are a not-for-profit community interest company which has been teaching sustainable fashion to young people and collaborating with primary schools, secondary schools, sixth forms and community groups since 2012.

We have worked and currently work with many schools such as: Woldingham School, Brighton Girls, Christ Church Primary, Francis Holland School, Roedean School, Latymer School, St James' School, West London Free School, St Mary's Ukrainian School, Girs Day School Trust, Marymount International School, St Joseph's Catholic Primary School and Homeschool classes.

Our programmes are bespoke to your needs from 1-3 day workshops, to weekly classes. The nature of the workshop will be determined between The Fashion School and the school, but you can expect:

  • To learn how to make repair and care for clothes, which is a skill that never goes out of fashion, using hand sewing, upcycling techniques, customisation and machine sewing.

  • Students get a clear understanding of what constitutes sustainable fashion through talks, presentations and practice.

  • Tutors who are DBS checked, with fashion degrees (or equivalent), who are all working fashion professionals.

We can hold programmes at our studios in Chelsea or Brighton as well as travel to schools in the local area. 

All tuition, trims, fabric and patterns are included. Students do not have to bring anything! Our past and current projects include: Customisation, Street Art, Make a Pair of Boxer Shorts, Skirts, Slip Dresses, Hoodies, Vest Tops, Corsets, Tote Bags and Teddy bears.
