Discover how innovation drives the fashion industry
Innovation is at the heart of the fashion industry. From developing new types of fabric and clothing materials to innovation in marketing and advertising, the industry constantly moves forward to remain competitive and relevant.
On this course, you will use that fashion retailer, Marks & Spencer, as a case study. You’ll learn how it has been a key fashion innovator, introducing new clothing materials that make our lives easier and more comfortable.
You’ll also choose an item of your own clothing to study, to see how evidence of innovative developments in the fashion industry can be found in our own wardrobes.
This course is designed for anyone with an interest in fashion innovation, particularly with regard to the development of new clothing materials and types of fabric, as well as advertising.
