Fashion Fringe Hits the Road

We’re going back to University!

Because we know that some of the best and brightest fashion stars in the UK emerge from towns and cities far beyond London’s borders, we will be embarking on a regional tour of Britain between the 12th and the 20th of March.

Like in previous years, Colin McDowell will be visiting leading Universities throughout the UK, bringing with him a panel of the UK’s fashion elite – offering fashion students and local fashion professionals advice on how to succeed in various career paths within the industry.
