Want to get your product into an e-commerce platform? This workshop will give you what you need to get started.
A sustainable design is one that can address the long term concerns of both the production process and the customer. We will brainstorm the infinite "how" to come up with the innovations that will make the fashion industry thrive into the changing future. Each designers' new ideas will be translated into a standout portfolio piece using detail sketching, technical sketching and text to explain the sustainable innovations behind a three piece capsule collection.
