Education is where every fashion professional’s journey begins. Whether the focus is on design, business management or technology, educational institutions collectively create the ground from which industry grows.
Fashion education is rich in content and learning opportunities that are constantly growing and evolving to keep up with the rapid changes in the dynamic world of fashion. In addition to education and learning, new perspectives and practices from emerging talents are born in fashion education and to eventually become high-end fashion creatives such as Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera, Domenico Dolce and Stella McCartney.
To connect leading fashion institutions and educators from around the world, FashionUnited launched The Fashion Education Network in 2009. The online platform connects the global fashion education market, providing a space where educators and schools can connect with other organizations, students and leading brands.
In addition to connecting the industry, The Fashion Education Network also shares the latest and most relevant news from the world’s leading fashion schools such as UAL (London College of Fashion), FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology), Central Saint Martins, Parsons, Istituto Marangoni, and IFM (Institut Français de la Mode) among others. In addition, the network has a comprehensive school and course directory that compiles a list of different fashion education programs offered by some of the most prestigious schools and institutes from around the world.
Additionally, FashionUnited provides valuable information and resources, such as the searchable internship directory that helps students easily connect with top brands such as Nike, Tiffany & Co., Channel, and PVH. Allowing them to expand their knowledge and experience, creating career opportunities in the fashion industry from an early stage. This ultimately contributes to the development of a talented and skilled future generation of fashion professionals.
As a leading B2B network, FashionUnited facilitates interaction between schools and global fashion companies to help create a more efficient industry. FashionUnited currently connects one million professionals every month – and that number continues to grow. With The Fashion Education Network, FashionUnited creates a space where schools and educators share news, knowledge and opportunities with each other. By doing so, pushing the industry forward and empowering emerging talent with the connections and resources they need to build a bright future in fashion.
