duration 2 weeks
fee GBP 2750

Learn all about fashion whilst enjoying some of the finest places London has to offer. 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. As an all inclusive, students will also be having brunch at The Ivy, browse the luxury boutiques and galleries down Bond Street and Dover Street in Mayfair, enjoy a Prêt-à-Portea at The Berkeley, have a spot of lunch at Farm Girl Cafe and peruse the superbrands at Harrods before having a light meal and visiting the food hall. Plus, our students will cruise the capital in style in Addison Lee cars and coaches- all their Ford Galaxy cars have free 4G Wi-Fi and in-car phone chargers as standard. We'll be adding even more to the list in the coming weeks as this programme will be going all out! Find out more on our website.
