In the fashion world, sustainability is a complex issue as it affects every stage of the product’s life cycle: design, material procurement, production, logistics, use and end of life.

The Summer Course in Sustainable Fashion affords a holistic view of sustainability and the tools needed to apply it at every stage of the fashion product’s life cycle. 

The concept of sustainability is gaining ground in society. As consumers grow more responsible, standards get stricter and scarce natural resources become more expensive, sustainable development is rising as one of the key factors in a company’s survival and competitive edge. In the fashion world, it also affects the various stages of a product’s life cycle. 

The course tackles the idea of integrating sustainability within the fashion company from both a theoretical and practical approach focussing on materials, processes, design, marketing and management. The programme takes place in a dynamic setting that combines technical lectures delivered by prestigious professionals in the sector with discussion panels and case studies, practical workshops and company visits.
