MASTER PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The Master in Fashion Management aims at shaping and developing the competences of managers capable to understand and play the rules of Fashion.
The Master in Fashion Management will provide participants with a strong, robust basis of fundamental managerial tools and with the necessary conceptual framework to understand and follow modern fashion languages and trends. Participants will also have the possibility to gain direct experience developing projects on specific topics chosen among the hottest issues in Fashion, and they will have the chance to work together with the most outstanding professionals and the most prestigious fashion brands. A series of meetings with companies’ executives and visits to fashion companies will be a key element of the programme.
SLOWEAR represents an innovative and contemporary brand in the fashion Italian system, a reality that is rooted in an artisan environment of which it has maintained the meticulousness, the creative and in-depth research and, in particular, the will to produce timeless, durable products. From these premises the concept of SLOWEAR has to be studied within a system of global production dominated by the standardization and dubious quality: SLOWEAR offers the precious opportunity to linger on products, ensuring the chance to overcome the concept of life cycle related to a product, the fashion one, where change is the basis of the logic of the market. In order to ensure quality and differentiation, SLOWEAR incorporates within 4 brands of clothing: INCOTEX – trousers, ZANONE - knitwear, MONTEDORO – casual jackets, GLANSHIRT – shirts. The success of SLOWEAR is connected with the ability to industrialize a sartorial process: also within the industrialization SLOWEAR has been capable to manage and to maintain a strong production control and quality. The communication of SLOWEAR resides in the strength of the product itself.
