Scandinavian MIND and Novare launch new fashion education programme
A two-day workshop with world-leading experts, giving you insights and actionable knowledge on how to future-proof your brand.
3 Jun 2021

The transformation of the fashion industry has begun. New technologies are already changing how we define fashion — from gaming culture to connected clothes. In the European Union, a series of initiatives with massive funding are set in motion to set new standards for the textile industry. Recycling is becoming a fast-growing sector.

Are you a fashion executive, brand or marketing director, or are working in fashion-related industries, such as recycling or real estate? 

We are providing a birds-eye view of the current fashion innovation landscape. We will provide you with up-to-date insights and actionable knowledge in order to define challenges and find opportunities. This is an intimate two-day workshop, with a chance to interact with the speakers and network with industry colleagues.

In this collaboration between Novare Leadership Academy and Scandinavian MIND, we create a new arena for leaders in the fashion industry, helping them tackle the current transformation and develop as leaders.

You will get:

An overview of the current fashion transformation.

Insights into gaming, wearables, and other technologies.

A look at the new EU standards for the textile industry.

Networking with speakers and colleagues.

Join us at Görvälns Slott 14—15 September 2021.
