The British Fashion Council joined forces with the Saturday Clubs Trust to support our Fashion & Business Saturday Club and we have been fortunate to have secured many high-profile Saturday Club Masterclasses through our BFC connection.

Industry Links

  • When size? established links with higher education, one of the immediate goals of size? syllabus was to approach and get involved with the very best fashion and creative arts talent in the UK, so we were made up with the addition of UCLan, with officially one of the best fashion departments in the UK, to our size? syllabus programme. The main aim of the Syllabus is to impart industry level standards, learning and practice in a live brief format to students, who are then given the support and tools from size? to respond. At size? we want to unearth the next generation of creatives and by offering this platform in the form of size? Syllabus we believe students involved stand the best possible chance of making their way into the industry, able to utilise the invaluable learnings taught during their time answering the Syllabus briefs
