The SOURCE Expo showcases inspirational suppliers and manufacturers from all over the world, working to fair trade, ethical and organic standards, linking them directly with hundreds of designers, retailers and brands. Now in its third season, the event includes a programme of seminars, introducing new products and exemplary supply and production systems, a Designer Pavilion showcasing some of the most inspirational design led fashion from around the world, a trends area and more.
We at the EFF are keen to involve students in the development of the sustainable fashion industry.

Hallo. I've just been accepted on the MA Fashion and the Environment course at London College of Fashion and my decision to accept falls on whether I can get enough funding. Does anyone know of any organisations, charities, brands etc that offer scholarships or bursaries? I'm currently leaning towards my study proposal involving research in to waste reduction and using innovative pattern cutting to create sculptural and wearable pieces that will last season after season. Any advice or links or contacts greatly appreciated. I have 3 weeks to make my decision!

Fashion Antidote is a small independent fashion school and studio based just off Brick Lane. Our emphasis is on skill building, specialising in courses and workshops for professional fashion, including fashion business and design.  


Skill Building

Our small informal classes take place in the Brick Lane studio, a relaxed and friendly space. Aimed at those within the industry wishing to change roles or advance their skills, or at graduates wanting to gain more technical roles or add to their portfolio, our courses offer an accessible way to update knowledge and achieve more.


Experienced tuition

Fashion Antidote is the brainchild of Susan Backhouse, former fashion designer, consultant, retailer and businesswoman. Susan ran a successful fashion label throughout the 80’s and 90’s, retailing from a central London outlet and wholesaling her collections around the world, and has many years experience in education as a senior lecturer at various top universities. This experience led Susan to start Fashion Antidote in 2009, to fill a gap she identified in fashion education, teaching professional level skills and knowledge.


All our tutors are practising professionals and highly competent in their field, some have their own labels, have worked with leading designers, or teach at well-known colleges and universities in and around London, which allows for Fashion Antidote to deliver top quality tuition. Our experienced tutors can assist students with insider information, priceless contacts, tips and techniques, and give their work a professional finish and head start in the industry.


Our courses run in daytime, evening and weekend slots, and are the perfect solution to a busy schedule. With one-to-one tutoring, available studio space and intensive courses, students have access to the time and support they need.

We offer a wide range of classes, courses and workshops covering all creative and practical fashion subjects, including:



●      Garment Construction

●      Pattern Cutting

●      Fabric Knowledge

●      Tailoring

●      Corsetry


●      Fashion Design

●      Fashion Styling

●      Fashion Drawing and Illustration

●      Fashion Business

●      P.R. and Marketing

Sustainable Design in the Real World is just an Educators Fantasy.....Discuss!

As a designer, do you believe that sustainable design is the right approach? As an educator, are you embedding sustainability into your teaching? But, have you ever had any (secret) doubts about the viability of this approach in the real world?

Please join us for an event at Chelsea College of Art & Design on Friday 16th July, 2-4pm, that addresses some of these issues. This debate, with its provocative contention is intended to air many of the counter- arguments associated with sustainable design, that are often unspoken.

What argument could there possibly be against apple pie and mother ? Well, apple pie can make you fat and mother can make you guilty......

Just turn up to Chelsea on Friday afternoon, after viewing the Texprint graduates’ work earlier and sit in the cool at 2.00pm for some more fresh thinking!

For more information, see the TED blog:

I am a student at the London College of Fashion studying MA Fashion and the Environment. I know of the MA Ethical Fashion at Epsom and an MA in sustainable design at Brighton, but is this it as far as a creative arts and sustainability practice goes? If you are a student or tutor of others please get in touch!
