making it as a young creative today
In this one-off special episode of i-D podcast Fash-On Fash-OFF we discuss the highs and lows of trying to break into a creative industry, how to get noticed by big brands or platforms, and the importance of sticking to your vision.
For the latest episode of Fash-On Fash-OFF we're joined by visual artist Jasmine Lasode, who won Nike’s On Air competition to design an Air Max with her 'London summer of love' inspired design, fashion designer Priya Ahluwalia, who won the 2019 H&M design award, and Robyn Lynch, a menswear designer who recently joined the Fashion East talent incubator.
We get into the struggles of getting a career off the ground -- from launching a label to pursuing a career as an independent visual designer, how important social media is in gaining recognition, and the role of university today.
The Nike Air Max 97 'London Summer of Love' designed by Jasmine Lasode, drops on 13 April in Nike Town London and at other selected retailers. Visit nike.com for more information.
