The successful students will secure an internship lasting six weeks.
Forefront of inclusion
Kent Le, programme director of MA International Fashion at the University, said: "It was a pleasant surprise when I was approached by the board of directors of GFW saying they would love a partnership between UEL and GFW in which UEL fashion students would be able to participate in a real case study where they’re able to put a range of fashion marketing and business theories into practice.
"UEL has always been at the forefront of diversity and inclusion in fashion. The fact that staff and students are invited to work with one of the leading gender free clothing brands that embrace body positivity is a testament to our commitment."
To be in with a chance of winning, students will need to provide market audit for the company and outline key marketing and social media strategies for the brand. The competition will close once positions in marketing, strategy and buying are filled.
The competition forms part of the Level 7 fashion consultancy project which provides students a chance of gaining work experience in a fashion company, build up their exit portfolio and improve their employability.
The UEL International Fashion Business programme is no stranger to industry partnerships. Last academic year, two students on the programme travelled between London and Paris for their exclusive internship with luxury bridalwear Temperly London developed by Ludovica Gentili, senior global sales executive, and Kent Le.
