I Fashion Start Up


Master – Milan

We felt the need for creating a course able to provide business tools and methodologies to support the new start-uppers of the fashion business and reduce the risks associated with the design, construction and launch of a new fashion or luxury brand.

Creating a new fashion and luxury brand, making it profitable, attracting investors to finance your ideas and generating revenues can be seen as something very difficult or impossible, but often you are very close to turning dreams into reality.

We are living in one of the fastest transformation periods in human history, new opportunities emerge every second and customers are constantly changing their needs.

Fashion Business follows specific rules and nobody should start a new adventure without understanding how they work and how to apply them to maximize results.
