Centre of Sustainable Fashion - Business Support Programme

at London Fashion Week - AW10

One of the things I have most enjoyed about writing this blog is meeting emerging designers whose infectious enthusiasm for sustainable fashion has been inspiring and uplifting. During London Fashion Week I met Pamela Atekepe and Michelle Lowe-Holder who took great pleasure in explaining to me the concepts behind their designs - more on each designer's work in a separate post.

Their work was being showcased at LFW after completing a Business Support Programme at the Centre for Sustainable Fashion. The programme consists of small group seminars and one to one advice sessions offering tailored support and guidance. All areas of sustainable fashion are covered including business development, range planning, production and communications. On completing the programme, participants will be eligible for a variety of showcasing and press opportunies. Including the CSF stand at London Fashion Week.

The CSF is currently offering places on the programme - the next introductory seminar will take place on 30th March 2010. The programme is fully subsidised for small to medium sized fashion businesses based in the greater London area.
