Manchester Fashion Movement
As an ambassador for Manchester Fashion Movement, help to enhance marketing strategies, develop inspiring social content and design campaign ideas that help to grow the brand community of MFM.
Manchester Fashion Movement’s main aim is to enable communities in Greater Manchester to better understand the impact of the fashion industry on our planet and recognise the benefits of a more responsible approach towards consumerism; to make a difference to our collective future. Through education in the community, communication through the arts and by influencing policy change. Blending fashion and storytelling into fashion performances, MFM provides an accessible platform building a culture of education and accountability. Our IRL events are full of camaraderie, opening a space of meaningful conversations on our experiences and offering others the freedom to express themselves through their clothing. The company’s activities are to empower, connect and engage people in a movement that sees communities around Greater Manchester understand the benefits of approaching fashion with a more sustainable outlook, whilst helping them recognise the real impact of the fashion industry and the important role we play as individuals. This is about making a commitment on our doorstep to highlight the innovation happening in Manchester and bringing this to the forefront for individuals. The MFM platform is here so we can work together, share learning and be catalysts for broader and transformative change. We're looking for students to make a contribution to MFM's work, especially around building our brand. This is an open-ended project; work will start during the Third Term and will develop in line with your interests and availability.
