If you’ve ever dreamed of working in fashion – that is, really working in fashion, not just for the glitz and glamour – you might want to pay attention to this. For the third year running, ELLE is collaborating with MIT Sloane Management School for an executive program on Innovation Leadership for Fashion & Luxury Consumer Brands.
Taking place over six months in Madrid, Paris and on the MIT campus in Boston, the program provides an exclusive look inside the fashion and luxury industries worldwide. It’s no secret that these industries are having to evolve rapidly with the rise of digital media and social platforms, and this program is designed to help navigate exactly that.
The 2020 Program kicks off in January and is divided into three modules: “Fast Fashion & Premium Brands” take centre stage in Madrid, “Haute Couture & Luxury” are the focus in Paris, and “Innovation” will be discussed in Boston. In between each session are sections of distance learning, with assignments to complete and case studies to review online.
Sessions will be hosted by professional experts and speakers; past years have seen the likes of designers Diane Von Furstenberg, Gabriela Hearst and Christian Louboutin, as well as executives like Michael Burke (a member of the LVMH Executive Committee), Jean-Claude Jourde (CEO of Estée Lauder) and Geoffrey de la Bourdonnais (CEO of Chloe).
