CO Partners With London College of Fashion
We are proud to announce a new collaboration with the London College of Fashion, which will support the next generation of fashion professionals to build a more sustainable industry.
London College of Fashion (LCF) is dedicated to achieving greater transparency in sustainability for fashion and like CO, LCF is working towards an industry which creates jobs, prosperity, and great products that do not damage the environment.
When education and business work together it can be a powerful force for change - which is why this partnership is such a natural fit.
CO’s free-to-join platform provides sustainable business intelligence, resources, and training alongside a global network of pioneering suppliers, brands, professionals and experts.
Over 5,000 LCF staff and students will be encouraged to create profiles, catalysing their ability to integrate sustainability into all areas of their University work and as they move into their professional careers; with the long term goal to offer to all 20,000 UAL students across its six world renowned arts colleges.
MA Fashion Futures students will also be given full access to all premium content on CO - data driven research that highlights the solutions and innovations at the forefront of sustainable fashion business.
This partnership has been developed to coincide with the ten year anniversary of the CSF at the London College of Fashion, which was founded to explore vital elements of Better Lives, LCF’s commitment to using fashion to drive change, build a sustainable future and improve the way we live. Over ten years it has become a leading voice for change in sustainability – lobbying government and embedding sustainability within the curriculum at LCF.
We’re also delighted to be supporting the LCF & Kering open-access digital course: Fashion & Sustainability: Understanding Luxury Fashion in a Changing World.
This 6 week course is free for a limited time so sign up now to avoid missing out! The course includes over 18 hours of videos, articles, peer reviews and quizzes covering the context to sustainable fashion, sustainable sourcing, and realising creative opportunities.
