Your year ahead

We’ve developed this accelerator to help you become this new breed of creative and claim your place in the industry of the future. Take a look at what the next 10 months could hold.

Your aesthetic & public profile

The starting module of the accelerator is all about goals and your aesthetic. You'll be working out who you are as a creative and defining the fashion magazines and brand clients who are right for you and what you want to achieve – both on the accelerator, and in your career.

Creative process & trends

Once you’ve defined your voice and unique signature as an artist, refine your process so that you can deliver consistently, while putting your own stamp on any project.

Fashion fundamentals

In the previous module you will established your aesthetic; here you’ll learn the fundamental skills needed to adapt your craft across the industry. You’ll discover how to work with the titles and brands that align with your goals, so they book you - and rebook you.

Future fashion

Now you’ve learnt the fundamentals of fashion work and how to get it, here you’ll learn the next steps of bringing your craft to new, diverse audiences and building a reputation as a desirable, forward-thinking creative.

Your brand and career ahead

In this important final module, you’ll learn how to promote yourself, how to present your work and how to thrive in the industry and achieve your goals. You’ll understand how to plan your career, so you can continue to create and achieve your goals while remaining motivated, inspired and excited about your future.
