An experience tailored to your goals

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 topics you could cover with your mentor. 

Your aesthetic & public profile

The starting point 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.

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

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

Working with your mentor, you’ll learn how to promote yourself, how to present your work and how to thrive in today's ever-changing industry. You’ll understand how to plan your career, so you can continue to do more of the kind of work you love.

What some of our 4,400 alumni say


Mastered woke me up when I started the program. I quit my job and started to pursue my dreams of session work.”

"Mainly mastered had influenced my attitude. I feel more confident in my ideas, less afraid to stand out. I have been arranging more and more of my creative shoots and I am more confident that I really am meant to do this."
