YNAP launches third edition of The Modern Artisan talent programme

The new edition is looking for six graduates to embark on a one-of-a-kind nine-month paid training programme. It comprises three months of immersive design training at the YNAP offices in London, followed by six months of manufacturing at Dumfries House, The Prince’s Foundation’s headquarters in Ayrshire, Scotland. The programme aims to “upskill and mentor the trainee artisans through the process of creating and bringing to market a responsible luxury clothing collection”. 

Importantly, they will also benefit from weekly mentorship sessions from yet-to-be-named brand and industry partners that last time included Nanushka, Gabriela Hearst and Mother of Pearl.The resulting capsule collection will be sold exclusively on Net-A-Porter in late 2024, with 50% of the products’ RRP donated to The Prince’s Foundation to support the “development of training programmes focused on sustaining traditional textile skills”.“While applicants should already possess strong sewing skills, the programme will support the trainees in developing advanced skills to transfer bespoke construction techniques to luxury small-batch production methods,” we’re told.UK-based fashion and textiles graduate applicants have until 30 July to apply at ynap.com.
