INTRODUCTION

Business marketing is a continuous process for any brand or designer for the marketing of fashion products, from its initial management to customer satisfaction, taking into account the intrinsic difference between supply and demand.

Fashion designers will gain knowledge about the fundamentals of marketing and how to manage their own creativity to their own personal or business benefit. These skills will be acquired through research, workshops and analytical tools, which designers will then be able to use when facing clients or projects.
