An experience tailored to your goals

The accelerator has been built to give you the insight, feedback, coaching, and network needed to 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

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

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.
