The Fashion School was founded in 2012 by Caroline Gration, with the aim to promote a healthy attitude towards fashion and individuality to children, teenagers and adults.
Our tutors have at least a BA (Hons) in Fashion or Textiles, are DBS certified, first aid trained, Arts Award advisers and have experience within the industry and/or running their own business.
We offer after school and Saturday classes for children and teens of all levels, exciting half term and holiday workshops, fashion trips, luxe fashion workshops for grown ups, and creative birthday parties for children.
We’re an Arts Award centre! Our tutors are Bronze & Silver Arts Award advisers and teach this nationally recognised GCSE level qualification – ideal for aspiring fashion/textile students who want to create their own brief.
We’ve been part of the Duke of Edinburgh awards scheme since 2012.
Teenage Fashion Lab in Chelsea
from £40.08 per session
The Fashion School Chelsea, 1st Floor, 6 Burnsall Street, Chelsea, London, SW3 3ST
FashionLab is for the students who love to be creative and have an interest in fashion!
This term will teach students about the importance of sustainability within the fashion industry and how they can still enjoy fashion in a responsible way.
The students will continue to enhance their design, making and textile skills, leaving the course with a fabulous handmade garment to be proud of and that will demonstrate everything they have learnt over the term.
A wonderful selection of donated deadstock designer fabrics will be available for the students to pick from to use, from designers such as Alexander McQueen, Brogger and Preen to name a few.
It's time to explore your identity through your clothing.
You'll be making something for yourself and exploring your creativity.
What inspires you? Will you add cultural influences? How will your other hobbies or your music taste inspire your designs? Will your influences inspire the shape of your garment or the type of fabric and textiles you use?
You'll be exploring these ideas whilst learning to use a sewing machine, adapt patterns and sew your garment.
