Education has always been a foundational pillar for RCGD Global, directly in line with our founders’ ethos. In 2005, Suzy Amis Cameron founded MUSE Global School, with her sister, Rebecca Amis. MUSE is the first school (ECE-12th grade) in the country to be 100% solar powered, zero waste, and with a 100% organic, plant-based lunch program. Based on MUSE’s values and curriculum, MUSE Global was launched in 2018 to franchise the school worldwide. As a solution to COVID-19, Suzy and her husband, James Cameron founded MUSE Virtual, a holistic, K-12 online learning platform providing interactive, innovative education to students across the world.
This passion for education continues for RCGD Global through our different offerings, and through collaboration and knowledge sharing, we work with emerging designers, fashion colleges and students, drawing attention to the importance of more positive practices in the fashion industry. On hiatus post COVID, our offering focusing on High-School and Post-Secondary youth returned in 2023 with an educational collaboration with Fashion Take Action.
Through our work RCGD Global engages with local communities including environmental schools and design colleges, to help emerging talent find a meaningful and environmentally-focused place within the design world. RCGD have worked with fashion colleges around the world, including the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, ESMOD Paris and Fashion Institute of Technology to create internship and work experience opportunities. We work with local communities, including artisan textile producers, seamstresses and sustainable design experts, introducing them to global business opportunities and creating knowledge share platforms through our collaborations. Via talks, workshops and community-building events, RCGD takes the conversation from the red carpet to homes around the world to discuss sustainability as a topic which affects us all.
We welcome educators to get in touch with us to find out more. We are proud to use our platform to ensure representation and inclusion for the talent working across the fashion industry and entertainment worlds.
