Sumary of Alexander McQueen shares creative youth collaboration in Wales:

  • Alexander McQueen has unveiled that in 2020 it undertook a creative educational youth programme in Wales to open up fashion to a new generation, as part of the label’s ongoing commitment to fashion education.
  • Sarah Burton, creative director at Alexander McQueen has launched a number of fashion education initiatives over the years, including open-access installations and study programmes to school-age, college and university students across the UK, and a scheme to donate and redistribute left-over materials for student collections.
  • During her research trip, Burton and her design team met Welsh creative director and filmmaker Charlotte James and documentary photographer Clémentine Schneidermann, who have been working creatively with youth groups in Wales for six years under their project Ffasiwn Stiwdio with school-age children in South Wales.
  • This led to a creative youth collaboration conceptualised by James and Schneidermann with the McQueen team and coordinated by youth worker Michelle Hurter at Blaina Community Centre.
  • “Community values and the belief in offering creative opportunities to young people are at the heart of what we believe at Alexander McQueen, and this record of what we all learned together last year is a testament to what transformative things can happen everywhere when empowering equal access to creative ideas.
