What we doThrough industry presentations, networking events, and discussions with a plethora of professionals from different sectors, we want students to engage with them on crucial topics related to their respective fields. Various themes will be explored, such as the quest for sustainability, social media, and women in the luxury supply chain. Students will be engaged in these themes, with the four sectors of our planned activities. We want to meet up with entrepreneurs, fashion designers, and artists related to the fashion field.
