Get Involved - Future Fashion Challenge

Teachers and schools - we need you!

Get involved with the Future Fashion Challenge. The challenge offers students the opportunity to use their imaginations, look into the future and show us what tomorrow’s fashion will look and feel like and what it could potentially do!

Please find attached a more detailed document with further information about the challenge, including online resources, tips and ideas.

We can offer support in the classroom to help you make your creations for a Future Fashion Show at the University of Huddersfield on Saturday 15 June The fashion show will be the centrepiece of a dynamic showcase of innovation labs, workshops for families, teacher-only workshops and an exciting compere who will make the fashion show a spectacular experience you and your students won’t forget! Your students will take to the catwalk to present their creations to university tutors, students, businesses, friends, family and the general public.

WOVEN can support you in the classroom, on a first come first served basis, with initial ideas, technical skills to make your creation and finishing support. WOVEN can also  help with materials. We are aware that the challenge has a very tight time-frame so would encourage you to contact us to discuss your individual support needs as soon as possible so that we can match you up with the right support in the classroom.

To be a part of this exciting project please email Chloe Williams: thechildrensartschool@gmail.com

To enable us to match your school with the appropriate practitioner please read the brief and include answers to these questions in your email:

  • What age group do you plan to work with?
  • How many children do you plan to work with?
  • In class time or as an after school club?
  • Which approach/outcomes from the info sheet are you particularly interested in for your school?
  • What do you need help with

If you and your school are ready to tell us about how you would like to showcase your Future Fashion Challenge creations – either at the Future Fashion Show on Fri 14 June, locally in an exhibition, or maybe even both, please fill in this form.
