Prince’s Trust and Marvel link up to support young people

Young people have designed a superhero inspired clothing range as part of a linkup between Disney’s Marvel comic book and cinema brand and UK charity Prince’s Trust.

The partnership launched in Spring last year with the first project to offer young people the change to design a range of Marvel products.

The first clothing range from the partnership has been revealed this month and is inspired by the comic and entertainment brand’s Avengers characters. A second range of clothing from the linkup, focusing on female superheroes, launches later this year.

“We’re thrilled to join forces with Marvel on this unique partnership, creating opportunities for young people that support them to realise their potential,” said Prince’s Trust director of fundraising and marketing Frances Milner.

“The Get Started in Product Design with Marvel course has brought together young people with a diverse range of skillsets and backgrounds to harness their creativity and build their confidence and self-belief.

“The course has also given young people invaluable mentorship and work opportunities, and some of them have now begun exciting careers in the industry.”

Disney executive Mike Stagg added: “We know how hard the fashion and design industries can be to break into, and our partnership with The Prince’s Trust offers such an invaluable experience which we look forward to continuing.”
