Fashion is about so much more than designing clothes. There are trends to predict, models to style, and brands to build. Fashion Business is also one of the hottest industries to work in, either as a designer, influencer or some other specialist. Who and what makes it so glamorous and interesting?
If you’ve seen movies such as “The devil wears Prada” or “The Intern,” after taking this course, you will look at those movies from a completely different perspective.
This class will teach you how business is conducted in the fashion industry. You will get an insight to industry mechanisms and fashion cycles- from the design process to sales and marketing strategies used by the biggest fashion houses. You will also learn current market trends, how to lead anything from a high-profile clothing brand to your own startup as well as get an insight to the future of the clothing industry.
All assignments must be completed in order to receive your course completion certificate. Course completion certificates will be emailed to everyone, a few days after the deadline of all assignments. If you need your certificate earlier, please let us know and we can email it to you as soon as you complete all assignments.
Attendance during the scheduled Zoom sessions is mandatory and we will be taking attendance! If you do not attend these, you will not receive a course completion certificate. Other than the Zoom sessions, you will be free to work whenever you want, at your own pace. You will have 4 weeks to complete all course requirements.
This class will consist of readings, videos and assignments and posted on Google Classroom and a few scheduled Zoom sessions (Zoom is a video conference app). Both of these platforms are free and easy to use. You will be invited to join Google Classroom about a week before class starts. Check your junk mailbox, as invitations to join Google Classroom sometimes end up there. Please make sure you register for the course with a valid email address, since this is where you will receive an invitation notification to join Google Classroom. Your email has to be Google Classroom compatible, so it’s best if you use gmail, hotmail or yahoo. If you do not receive a notification, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to contact us.
There is NO pre-assignment for the online class. You might however be asked by your instructor, a few days in advance, to prepare a little bit for the first zoom meeting. The course syllabus, all readings and assignments will be posted on Google Classroom before the first zoom meeting.
You will attend the Zoom sessions by going to zoom.us and clicking “Join Meeting.” You will then enter a meeting ID number that will be provided to you. You can join via a computer, iPad or phone! We would prefer to see you, but if you do not have a camera on your computer, that’s ok. You can join via audio only. There is also an option to call in from your phone, in case your computer audio has any trouble connecting.
