Fashion Management

Why has fashion management become so relevant?

Why is fashion management so important?

Fashion and Luxury management has become more and more relevant in the last few years. In particular with the development of e-commerce and digital channels, luxury and fashion products are now available to every person.

30% of fashion jobs as we know them may not exist in 10-15 years, changes in consumer preferences and artificial intelligence being some of the reasons behind this change.

To explain the concept behind Digital Fashion Academy, let’s divide the fashion knowledge into two streams “manufacturing technology” and “digital retailing”. Digital Fashion Academy has at its heart the creation of knowledge around the latter.

The reason why we believe it is necessary to create a full scale digital academy rather than just online courses or tutorials is that learners will benefit from being focused and guided in their studies.

Whether you are a graduate who wants to enter the fashion industry or a professional who needs to upgrade your skills, you will need the help of digital professionals who are willing to share knowledge, provide direction of studies to meet your business needs and finally provide connections to the fashion industry.

On the other hand, manufacturing technology is at the heart of product innovation, and needs to be leveraged by digital business professionals, as the result of the market needs.
