The ever-shifting nature of the fashion and luxury industries is a topic ripe for study. For the third year, ELLE, MIT Sloan Education, and Mindway are collaborating on an academic program where you can do just that. The 2020 program, “Innovation Leadership for Fashion & Luxury Consumer Brands” is now accepting applications.
What began in November 2017 is now a premiere global initiative, which offers exclusive insight into the challenges faced by luxury and fashion brands. This hybrid course combines online and onsite education to break down the barriers in several areas of the business.
The 2020 program will last six months, from January to the end of June. Onsite classes will focus on three modules of study and see students travel across the globe. Participants will dive into the world of fast fashion for 10 days in Madrid, followed by haute couture and luxury in Paris, before ending with six days spent on innovation at MIT's campus in Boston.
Onsite classes will include guest speakers and industry experts. In the last two years, lecturers have included Diane Von Diane Von Furstenberg, Gabriela Hearst, Christian Louboutin, and Nina Garcia, ELLE Editor-in-Chief.
