Digital Labs: fashion designers

Sector: Culture and creative industries
Type: Digital Labs
Location: Online
Deadline: 30 November 2021 at 15:00 Kyiv time
Organiser: House of Europe

Fashion is first and foremost business. Designing a unique piece is not the endpoint, it is a beginning: you have to tune up the production, design a power distribution system, and prepare a pitch for showrooms, press, and the audience. 

All this you will learn during a nine-day Digital Lab. There will be a lot of practice and real-life examples presented by fashion industry experts from the EU and Ukraine. After the Lab, you will be able to organise processes in your company and start selling all over Europe. 

The Lab will run from 5 till 13 April 2021. We invite translators: you will communicate with foreign experts fluently. 

Carefully study the application guidelines and join the Digital Lab to start your successful fashion brand.

What do I get?
  • A detailed development plan for your fashion brand: you will optimise the processes to get profit
  • 10+ lectures delivered by designers, managers, logistic experts, distributors, and promoters touching upon every stage of production of a collection: from the search of the signature style to production to cooperation with showrooms to participation in fashion weeks
  • 10+ hours of mentoring sessions with experts where you will get personal advice and an outside perspective on your development plan 
  • A chance to win a stipend on further development — up to EUR 500. You can spend it on projects, courses, books, and other things that advance you professionally
