  • Currently working OUTSIDE the fashion, luxury and beauty industries and want to make a career move?
  • Passionate about fashion, luxury or beauty? Is this something you’ve always dreamed of, and can you demonstrate that you have tried to access the industry in the past 12 months.
  • A high achiever in your field? You will be able to demonstrate your achievements to date.
  • Passionate about driving positive change and contributing to the evolution of the fashion, luxury, and beauty sectors?
