Exclusive Access Inside Fashion East

  • Eloise King
In i-D’s latest documentary, we’re given exclusive behind-the-runway access to Fashion East, getting the inside scoop from the talent incubator’s alumni, current designers and stars of the future. We spend a season together with Lulu Kennedy MBE, the founder and director of Fashion East, and her loyal team to uncover business secrets of the industry, and how to make it as a successful fashion designer.
With the sharpest eyes in the business, Fashion East is the non-profit mentorship scheme that sponsors 6 rising designers for 3 seasons each, giving fledgling stars an opportunity to create for the catwalk, without the pressure of sustaining a business.
Lulu and her team have carved out a space for ‘creative freefall’, culminating in a showcase at Fashion Week. What does it take to join Fashion’s First Family? Join us as we spend autumn/winter 2018 with Fashion East to find out.
