The Business Of Luxury Fashion

SEN1316 The Business of Luxury Fashion

(Senior Instructor: Sasha Israni) Fashion: an industry that dates back to the beginning of global civilization. Fashion is constantly evolving. In the 1920's Coco Chanel altered women's fashion to incorporate trousers and blazers. In 2016, Kanye West merged his fashion line, Yeezy Season 3, with his music album, The Life of Pablo. Though most observers focus on the constantly changing trends, designs, and media of fashion, there's fast-paced change concurrently occurring behind the scenes. In this course, we will be studying the business of luxury fashion. We will be exploring four specific areas: demand, the supply chain, technology, and sustainability. Through articles, videos, guest speakers, and industry professionals we will explore how luxury fashion works today and brainstorm future possibilities.
