About the Programme

The fashion industry is changing rapidly, with sustainability and responsible business driving a huge revolution across the globe. In Australia, this changing business and professional landscape demands new knowledge and skills for fashion industry veterans and graduates.

In this deep-dive programme, you will discover key ideas that underpin sustainable and circular fashion. You will also learn tools and strategies for developing sustainable products and business practices throughout the textile and garment supply chain.

You will gain cutting edge insights from a global perspective and
have the chance to develop your own project brief, with one-on-one mentoring and coaching. The programme will include participants from different brands and retailers, so you will have the unique opportunity to learn from your industry peers and be part of a growing network of passionate professionals. Our ultimate aim is to empower you and your organisation to start your sustainability journey without compromising on business growth or brand value.

The programme will be delivered by Dr. Clara Vuletich, who has 10 years of experience as an expert facilitator and trainer of sustainable design innovation in industry and education. She holds a PhD in sustainable textiles from University of the Arts London and has consulted to brands including H & M (Sweden), Spell, TigerLily Swimwear and Sussan.
