Fashion Displacement

Bridging the gap between fashion education and the industry

Discover more

The third edition of Fashion Displacement will set the tone for a choral conversation on the future of fashion and which steps must be taken in order to bridge the gap between education and industry.

I think that today, your career is fundamental for your own independence and happiness. It is also a place to set forward the visibility and practice of equal rights. The educational environment is the place where people are formed in order to cover a job position, so it has to correlate and be effective in that sense. Nonetheless, the educational environment is also the place where the mentality of young people is formed. These young women and men will shape the future of the world in either a sustainable or unsustainable manner. As fashion is the most complete discipline, including humans, society and the industry, filling the gap between fashion education and fashion industry, is a mission with universal implication.
