Working in the fashion industry can be fast, glamorous and exciting. But unless designers have an understanding of the strategies, tools and management techniques involved in building and managing a successful fashion firm, they are unlikely to see their talent turn into a successful, sustainable business and benefit from the fun, glamorous aspects of the industry.
The British Fashion Council and Design London*, as part of its Design Connection programme, have partnered to bring you The Business of Fashion, a master class that will equip your fashion firm with some basic but powerful business tools that can help you develop and grow your business. It is a great opportunity to take a fresh look at your label through the lens of business and to meet other fashion business owners.
