Understanding Luxury Fashion in a Changing World

Kering and London College of Fashion (LCF) launched a new certificate programme to address the complex and interconnected sustainability challenges facing the fashion industry. Titled "Fashion and Sustainability: Understanding Luxury Fashion in a Changing World," the six-week course is built on six key modules. These cover both the theoretical aspects of sustainability as well as real-life business cases that luxury brands face, such as raw material sourcing, animal welfare and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The course start 9 April 2018.

Learning online at your own pace

This course is great for those working in fashion, fashion education, and those with an interest in sustainability in the fashion industry.

Every stage in a garment’s life threatens the planet and its resources. It can take more than 20.000 litres of water to produce 1 kilogram of cotton, equivalent to a single t-shirt or pair of jeans, according to the World Wide Fund for Nature. Up to 8.000 different chemicals are used to turn raw materials into clothes, including a range of dyeing and finishing processes.

On this course, you will explore key sustainability issues, agendas and contexts associated with luxury fashion. Consisting of a mix of films, podcasts, activities and discussions, the open-access course can be completed anywhere with good access to the Internet and is structured so that students can work through learning materials at their own pace — fitting education around their own schedule, rather than having to attend lectures at set times.
