GROW – Getting Your Foot in the Creative Door

Sunday, September 26th 12:00-14.00

An interactive session for budding fashion and creative professionals from diverse backgrounds interested in pursuing a career in fashion. Join the founder of Fashion Minority Report, Daniel Peters, and selected guests as they discuss their own routes into the industry, and the invisible barriers often faced by minorities. This will be followed by an opportunity for a small number of attendees to receive honest and constructive feedback about their portfolio, and advice on refining their craft.

(Fashion) Minority Report exists to create office equality within the British fashion industry for diverse fashion professionals. A key element of their strategy is to provide a funnel to integrate rising professional talent from minority backgrounds into the industry through their mentoring and paid internship programme, bolstering the sector and making it more inclusive.
