Enterprise & Business Studies

Develop your students' entrepreneurial spirit with a live brief from global fashion retailer FatFace. Throughout Spring 2018 your students will work through the lifecycle of a FatFace product, design a print for a t-shirt and the business plan to go with it and build an understanding of what it takes to get a product to market.

After the success of year one, Project Fresh Face is back and we are hoping to make it bigger than ever. Whether your students are new to the school or thinking about a career in fashion, business, art, design or marketing then this project is perfect for them. Aimed at students in years 7-10, Project Fresh Face has been designed to be integrated into the school day or utilised as an extended learning task for Gifted & Talented students.

Throughout the first year of the project FatFace were so impressed with the work they saw they couldn’t choose just one winning design, instead they choose 4! Students from these 4 schools saw their designs come to life in July 2017 and hit the shelves of local FatFace stores and their website!   

Aims

  • Generate and develop fresh ideas in a group environment
  • Design a print for a FatFace t-shirt and hopefully make it to the shelves of local stores
  • Build a marketing plan using customer insights.
