Build professional skills in fashion marketing and branding

This ExpertTrack offers new and experienced fashion professionals the opportunity to build up-to-date, practical knowledge of the business of fashion and the contemporary fashion market.

Build the key skills required to succeed in fashion management

Globally, the worldwide fashion market in 2020 is valued at $300 billion.

Using case studies from major fashion brands, you’ll develop your professional understanding of the key business components of the global fashion industry, from building a collection and fashion brand to fashion entrepreneurship.

Discover fashion brand business models and analyse consumer behaviour in fashion

To fully understand the inner workings of the modern fashion business, you’ll examine the fashion market from three key perspectives: fashion from a historical and anthropological standpoint, established and emerging fashion business models, and the fashion business from a consumer behaviour perspective.

This holistic approach will enhance your understanding of the current fashion market from both a business and consumer perspective.

When it comes to building a fashion brand, fashion professionals need skills in marketing, manufacturing, communication and digital.

This ExpertTrack will teach you how to build a brand identity that translates seamlessly to your consumer experience. You’ll also master how to market a fashion brand and communicate it using digital and social media marketing.

Tackle fashion product development and sustainability in fashion

You’ll get to grips with fashion product development as you learn the ins and outs of planning, developing, and presenting a collection or fashion product.

The final course of ExpertTrack is dedicated to fashion’s future: fashion entrepreneurship and sustainable fashion.

You’ll consider the logistics of creating a sustainable fashion business and examine how to be entrepreneurial in fashion now and in the future.
