Apply to Project UNLEASH – Creative Co-labs

We are excited to be going on another collaborative journey with fashion and creative founders in Nigeria and postgraduate students in the UK.


The Creative Co-Labs is an offshoot of the virtual business exchange program – Project UNLEASH. The program aims to foster creative collaborations between fashion brands in Africa and postgraduate fashion and creative students in the UK in partnership with Conde Nast College of Fashion & Design.

The virtual collaborative programme will run for 10 weeks from 28th March to 13th June 2022 and will provide a platform for fashion brands to receive hands-on support in finding solutions to key challenges being faced in their ventures, particularly in branding, PR, and social media marketing by Masters students in the UK.

Creative Co-labs is aimed at mid-stage African fashion brands who have been in business for  4 years or above and are signed up as part of The Assembly’s Membership Network willing to work as theoretical clients and UK postgraduate students from MA Fashion Communication. 

The goal is to open up direct access to cross-cultural networks, fashion industry skills, and capacity development. Basically, be the boost and leverage needed to achieve tangible business growth and help postgraduate students develop confidence when dealing with an industry-set brief and working with creative industry professionals.
