Parsons School of Design
"When we were first approached to take part in the Ldny initiative, it quickly became clear how closely it reflected our own ethos of Better Lives – using fashion to drive change, build a sustainable future and improve the way we live. Through this partnership we have been extremely proud to partner with the UN’s Women and Trade Programme which has brought together our womenswear and menswear students with artisans from places such as Ethiopia and Kenya."
FRANCES CORNER OBE
Head of London College of Fashion
"Working on this unique and important project for the Ldny Festival as part of the curriculum, our students have had access to enviable opportunities and experiences. This hugely exciting project has brought second year students from the BA (Hons) Fashion Design and Development course together with the UN-s Women and Trade program to actively collaborate and achieve desirable designs in both womenswear and menswear."
