ABOUT THE SCHEME

We've created a mentoring scheme just for fashion creatives. The scheme will match young fashion creatives with an experienced industry professional to become their mentor from different backgrounds such as design, creative direction, finance, marketing/pr, tech, manufacturing, styling, blogging and law.

The Mentoring Scheme provides six months of business or career mentoring for aspiring fashion entrepreneurs, hoping to start and run a new business, or for aspiring fashion professionals hoping to land a role within a prominent organisation. Mentors are there to encourage, educate, support the development of a mentee’s idea, build confidence, provide feedback and help them reach their goals. 

The mentoring scheme is a voluntary programme which offers mentors the opportunity to give back to the fashion community, share their experiences knowledge and expertise with the next generation and also create awareness for their own businesses or professional profile.
