A brand goes much further than simply a name, a logo and a product, and fashion is a highly competitive and ever-changing business.
Creating a fashion brand requires professionals who are trained in brand management, with knowledge that extends from the complex functioning of the workings of the fashion system, business development and strategic pathways, to the pillars of branding and their practical application to the circumstances of a company.
Thanks to the internet, every fashion brand is now a global business. Creating innovative fashion brands and identifying business opportunities are crucial elements for captivating an increasingly informed and connected audience that craves brands which not only respond to their needs, but also connect with them on an emotional level.
The customer of the future is looking for fashion brands with meaning, brands that are based on values and a purpose, brands that embody an ethic and seek radical solutions to the challenges facing fashion both today and in the future.
This programme trains students in market analysis methodologies, innovation strategies and knowledge of finance, strategy and business development, as well as strategic tools, branding guidelines and the imaginary associated with creating a memorable fashion brand that can forge an emotional connection.
In addition, students will learn the steps required to create flexible multi-format product structures (drops/testing/virtual) that are tied to conceptual development, while outlining an optimal strategy for launching the brand on the market and ensuring its profitability.
This postgraduate programme is directed at fashion designers who want to create their own brand. It is also aimed at graphic designers and specialists in communication, advertising and public relations who wish to learn about business tools and creativity so that they can manage and launch a fashion brand.
