FAD (Fashion Awareness Direct)

We’re an award-winning charity which offers young people the opportunity to get ahead with their creative careers.

Founded 1997

  • Mission statement

    We believe that talented young people should be able to progress and thrive, regardless of their personal circumstances, financial situation or ethnic background. Fashion Futures bring creative young people and professionals together to learn from each other, equipping young people with the skills, knowledge and resilience they need to succeed.

  • Aims

    FAD (Fashion Awareness Direct) aims to:

    • To support young people, especially those facing socio-economic challenges to make informed decisions about their future and to successfully pursue creative career paths and access higher education.
    • To use fashion as a tool to inspire and motivate, enabling young people to develop their confidence and gain new skills.
    • We strive for a more inclusive fashion industry. People from low income and BAME backgrounds are underrepresented in the arts sector, and we work to redress that imbalance.
