Education is where the journey of every fashion professional begins. Whether the focus lies in design, business management or technology, educational institutions collectively establish the ground from which the industry grows.
Fashion education is rich in content and learning opportunities that are constantly growing and evolving to keep up with the rapid changes in the dynamic world of fashion. Besides training and learning, new perspectives and practices from emerging talents are born in fashion education, and to eventually become high-end fashion creatives, such as Marc Jacobs, Carolina Herrera, Domenico Dolce, and Stella McCartney.
To connect leading fashion institutions and educators from around the world, FashionUnited launched The Fashion Education Network in 2009. The online platform connects the global fashion education market, providing a space where educators and schools can connect with other organizations, students, and leading brands.
On top of connecting the industry, The Fashion Education Network also shares the latest and most relevant news from the world's top fashion schools, such as UAL (London College of Fashion), FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology), Central Saint Martins, Parsons, Istituto Marangoni, and IFM (Institut Français de la Mode) among others. Additionally, the network features a comprehensive school and course directory compiling a list of different fashion education programs offered by some of the most prestigious schools and institutes from across the world.
Additionally, FashionUnited provides valuable information and resources, such as the searchable catalog for internships that helps students to easily connect with leading brands like Nike, Tiffany & Co., Chanel, and PVH. Allowing them to expand their knowledge and experience, building career opportunities in the fashion industry from an early stage. This eventually contributes to the development of a talented and skilled future generation of fashion professionals.
As a leading B2B network, FashionUnited facilitates the interaction between schools and global fashion companies to help build a more efficient industry. FashionUnited currently connects one million professionals each month - and that number continues to grow. With The Fashion Education Network, FashionUnited is creating a space where schools and educators share news, knowledge, and opportunities with each other. With this, moving the industry forward and enabling emerging talents the connections and resources they need to build a bright future in fashion.
