Fashion Management in the Craft Industry

Fashion Management in the Craft Industry is our first Postgraduate Program developed and shared between two of our main Schools, based in Madrid and Florence.

The fashion market generates great demand, which leads more and more luxury firms to follow the business model of large retailers, generating more than three or four collections each year, at a frenzied pace, as well as creating increasingly exclusively products, which are personalised and linked to the new values demanded by consumers. 

On the other hand, factors such as the consolidation of new technologies, real time, the emergence of new markets and production decentralisation force the textiles sector to seek constant solutions and improvements in order to be able to innovate and satisfy demand. As a result of this phenomenon, and to avoid saturating the market, many companies lend their products a differentiating value beyond their brand image. Because of this, the luxury sector focuses on artisan, unique and exclusive features, creating the concept of a new luxury where technology and craftsmanship come together.

Today, the manufacturing and distribution processes of luxury products are increasingly complex and sophisticated, and also more personalised, so these sectors require professionals who can coordinate and manage with precision and quality this kind of production process. Responsible, professional and efficient people who can understand the business model and simultaneously coordinate the manufacturing of products, negotiate with suppliers, monitor stock distribute and define the commercial strategy of a product.

Because of this, the Postgraduate Course in Fashion Management in the Crafts Industry is based on the acquisition of knowledge in the fields of management, marketing, craftsmanship values and buying, developing skills and practical experiences in product management in the widest sense of the word, with a specific focus on the Made in Italy industry.
