Delivery Days A New Initiative by the London Fashion Forum
So what is a Delivery Day?
The aim of this new initiative is to provide an overview of the working environment to fashion undergraduates in the London area. The London Fashion Forum is currently organising a half-day, informal seminar, whereby speakers from industry will give a brief talk on their selected topic.
This will act as a forerunner to an open surgery where individuals can come and ask specific questions in confidence.
The main aim is to make the day practical and enjoyable, giving hard-hitting advice regarding the world of fashion.
Who is the London Fashion Forum?
The London Fashion Forum is a non-profit making limited company that has been funded by the London Development Agency until 2005. Its aims and objectives are simple, to ensure the existence of a co-ordinated and integrated support for the industry, plugging gaps where they exist.
It offers free and impartial advice to anyone that needs help and more information can be found in our latest press release on www.londonfashionforum.com.
If you are interested in participating in the new initiative Delivery Day either as a speaker or participant FE / HE Institution, please let us know and we can arrange a mutually convenient day to meet to discuss the concept further. If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact us. Please take a look at the proposed agenda for discussion and review.
