FCG WEBINAR - THE CHANGING ROLE, PROCESSES AND DEMANDS ON THE DESIGNER
Speaker: Simone Leonhardt

Digitalisation and sustainability are rapidly driving major changes in how all industries are developing and making products, including a new understanding of what a product lifecycle means. These forces have, in a very short time, dramatically changed the role a fashion designer plays. How they work, the tools they use, what constraints they deal with and fundamentally what skills they must have. Simone Leonhardt will explore and discuss the new possibilities, challenges and some approaches for fashion education to meet the future.

The Webinar will be divided into a presentation- and a Q&A part.
Language: English
