Could you be the next Alexander McQueen or Vivienne Westwood? The Your Future in Fashion seminar, run by the London College of Fashion in conjunction with Newham College, aims to give you the chance.

The event on March 5 will include workshops on how to run a fashion business, plus sessions on styling, media and PR, buying and merchandise, and manufacturing and craft. It is open to people aged between 14 and 21 from the borough.

Speakers include Toby Meadows, a fashion consultant who has worked with Topshop, Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood, plus John William, a fashion journalist and stylist who has worked with photographer Rankin and footwear designer Havva Mustafa.

Organisers hope it will give a boost to young people interested in fashion ahead of the London College of Fashion’s permanent move to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park as part of Olympicopolis.
