Fashion Displacement

Professionals to rework the industry

Discover more

Our industry is evolving and therefore we as professionals must also. In order to foster adaptable employees, there first must be a clear link between today’s courses and today’s careers. Skills mismatch is something that loses time, output and money for both employees and companies. Then, an ongoing dialogue with the industry is key. Creating an overlap between our worlds is key. This is what will move the industry into a new space.

Florence – March 30th, 2017

For this edition of Fashion Displacement, the discussion will be focused on adapting young professionals to the evolving industry, and the panel will be made up of fashion and job-market experts from around the world.
