Free Course: Fashion and Sustainability
Understanding Luxury Fashion in a Changing World
Few years ago, I did it and I strongly recommend it for fashion students, new fashion designers and young entrepreneurs.
The course restarted in the last week of February 2020, and you can manage your time to study in six weeks.
How can we make fashion more sustainable?
Fashion is a global industry worth $2.4 trillion, employing around 50 million people, and is said to be one of the world’s most polluting industries.
Fashion has the power to make positive change, re-imagining currently damaging systems.
