ISKO, a Turkish denim manufacturer, is a contributor to the Institut Français de la Mode’s new online course on fashion sustainability. The 10-week course was created as part of a collaboration between IFM and luxury firm Kering. It will look at the relevance of sustainability in the fashion industry and allow students and experienced fashion professionals to discover how they can help shape the industry’s future. This course is intended for students or young professionals interested in fashion sustainability, or experienced fashion professionals who want to update their knowledge of the concept of sustainability. No previous skills or experience are required to complete the course.
The history and values of sustainable development, how they apply to the fashion business, are covered, as well as the practicalities of developing and implementing a corporate social responsibility and sustainability strategy. ISKO’s contribution is a video presentation that provides insight into its Responsible Innovation sustainability strategy and how it addresses its role as a leader in denim sustainability.
Elena Faleschini, the company’s worldwide field marketing manager, believes the training will provide participants with “the knowledge and tools to become the change-makers we need in the business.”
