Dressing Black Masculinities

  • RHS Centre London College of Fashion, John Prince's Street 20 John Prince's Street W1G 0BJ (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

By London College of Fashion, University of Arts London

Free

Historically, black men of African descent have resisted stereotypes and tropes through their dressed appearance. Adopting, adapting and appropriating styles from the cultures surrounding them, this group have exerted an undeniable influence on both subcultural style and mainsteam fashion - although this contribution is often overlooked in traditional accounts of mens’ history.

In the 20th and 21st centuries black men have articulated their sartorial masculinities in myriad ways; sometimes blending in, sometimes standing out but always expressing multiple identities to reflect issues of culture, diaspora, fashion and appearance. Our three notable speakers will draw on and explore contemporary and historic aspects from their own research and experience.

Fashion Marketing: How to market your brand successfully and on a budget

  • The Swiss Church / Gallery Room Endell Street WC2H 9DY (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

By Utelier 

Two-hour masterclass led by industry expert (and founder of Fash:ED) Frederica Boateng.

About this class

At Utelier we support businesses, entrepreneurs and start-ups to help them create the next successful fashion brands of the future.

Having a great business idea alone is no longer enough. Building awareness of your brand via marketing is essential. But with so many marketing channels and methods - marketing can seem overwhelming and easy to get lost in. If you don't put a strategy in place and allow for overwhelm to take over - you either will waste your time trying various "things" with poor result or do nothing.

But.... with a little help and carefully planned strategy, you can do it alone and without breaking the bank or getting into debt.

This master class will show you how to do your own marketing on a budget.
