As part of the EAST-Education initiative, London College of Fashion and Fashion District will be running a Schools Innovation Challenge. The competition hopes to inspire and challenge Key Stage 2 & 3 students to consider how new technologies could change the way we shop.

Between March and June, students will be introduced to new concepts which will challenge them to think creatively, work as a team and build digital and problem-solving skills. On June 17th, teams of students will be invited to submit their own concepts for what their own “store of the future” could look like through the use of technology.

Shortlisted entries will be invited to pitch at a celebratory event, where winners will be selected by a panel of industry experts. Generously sponsored by Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield, there will be six cash prizes with 2 x £1500 for the winning entries and 4 x £500 for the two runners up in each category to support the creative curriculum back in school.

We will be sharing some of the winning entries here in Summer 2019.
