A Pop-up of GCU’s British School of Fashion (BSoF) recently took place in Milan. Hosted by the prestigious Politecnico di Milano Graduate School of Business (MIP), the three day pop-up was attended by executives from leading European fashion and luxury brands, as well as postgraduate students seeking to break into a career in fashion and luxury.
The pop-up focused upon “Heritage and Innovation” in the British fashion and luxury sectors and GCU staff led a series of workshops and seminars on current fashion and luxury business issues.
Topics included consideration of the fashion brand experiences of the future; the challenges of developing a successful and sustainable global fashion brand, strategies for unleashing entrepreneurial thinking in the fashion and luxury sectors, as well as techniques for predicting the next wave of digital advances in the industry.
The British School of Fashion and MIP are currently exploring further collaborative ventures for the future.
Matteo Montecchi, programme director of the MBA Luxury Brand Management at the British School of Fashion, said: “It was a real pleasure to join staff and students at MIP Business School and to discuss current issues affecting the global luxury sector.
“This is a significant step in the development of GCU British School of Fashion’s reputation as a leader in fashion and luxury education.”
