Fashion Crossover London was founded in 2015 by entrepreneur Since Wang with a clear vision of promoting slow fashion and sustainability while celebrating craftsmanship and individuality. The company champions emerging designers from around the world who support and share its core values, and connects them with international fashion buyers and industry professionals.
Its Graduate Talent Programme promotes recent graduate designers and their creations to its extensive network of contacts including stylists, magazine editors, social media influencers and buyers. The programme is highly-regarded in the industry.
The new collaboration with UEL will see International Fashion Business students given the opportunity to pitch an idea, either creative or business based, to Fashion Crossover London clients. The winner(s), who will be decided jointly by Fashion Crossover CEO Since Wang, and UEL's Kent Le, will receive an eight-week internship in their Canary Wharf head office in London.
Since Wang said: "Kent and I have known each other in professional capacity for a while, I am always motivated by Kent's innovation of bringing new ideas to the students at UEL, as such I am really pleased we got this project off the ground this year. I am excited to see how students translate their academic knowledge to industry solutions and apply them through real life cases and work experience."
Previous Fashion Crossover London internships have included opportunities to work at the Brit Awards, Cannes Film Festival and the BAFTAs.
