“The fashion studio assistant is a key position in the designer industry, working with the team that creates a collection”

The fashion studio assistant is a key position in the designer industry, working with the team that creates a collection. This apprenticeship will introduce you to the designer fashion industry, with experience gained in both the product and commercial sides of a brand. In a large company, this role would be more focussed on the studio, but in a smaller company, this role may also be involved in many other areas of the business. Busy, challenging, and exciting, the apprenticeship will encompass a wide variety of tasks, and will give a broad education in the reality of day-to-day life in a designer business. The apprenticeship starts in the heart of a designer business, the studio, to learn about how a collection is created. It will then lead to 12 months in a more focused area of the business: product development or production, sales and operations, or fashion marketing and communications. In order to go on to many roles in this diverse industry, a foundation in understanding how a collection is created, marketed and sold is invaluable.
