Day 6: Including Creativity In Education

published on 6 December 2020

Day six of Fashion Roundtable's From Front Row To Front Bench takeover featured discussions with industry insiders about the value and importance of a creative education. Fashion Roundtable's Tamara Cincik (founder and CEO) was joined in conversation with Orsola de Castro (co-founder of Fashion Revolution), Rahemur Rahman (menswear designer) and Professor Dilys Williams (director of The Centre for Sustainable Fashion) throughout the day. They discussed the need for sustainability as part of the fashion curriculum and the vitality of young and independent designers, whose clothes are made with love.

Cincik also hosted a panel discussion with Zowie Broach (head of fashion at the Royal College of Art), Karen Alexander (curator, writer and researcher) and Dr Rachel Payne (art education teacher and researcher) about the fundamental nature of art, the closure of youth clubs thanks to austerity measures and the importance of decolonising the curriculum.

Finally, Cincik was joined by Sarah Mower (fashion critic) and Karen Binns (editor) on a panel discussing Mower's numerous emerging talent initiatives for young designers which she has worked on with the British Fashion Council, the importance of cultivating design talent earlier rather than later and the British government's blatant lack of support for creative education and the creative sector at large.
