On October 5, three pop-up corners of fashion business education school Fashion Factory School will begin operating in the Trend Island department store space. They will feature five brands from alumni of the flagship Impulse Pro course. The special project is a gift from the Fashion Factory School team to the students to mark the school’s 10th anniversary. You can visit temporary stores until October 30.
As part of the student support program and work with the community, special conditions were agreed for fashion entrepreneurs. Participating brands were selected by a team of Trend Island buyers, including 7.2.66, Toolor, Persve, Nerrro and Bossame.
“In the year of the 10th anniversary, Fashion Factory School focuses on collaborative projects with the main players in the industry. One of them is Trend Island. We focus not only on the relevance and applicability of educational programs, but also on providing tangible support to aspiring brand founders. Graduates of the Impulse Pro course over the past three years have received a unique opportunity to start selling their brands in leading department stores at the same level as already well-known Russian brands. This is a great start for the brand. We will continue with this initiative: in spring our students will also be able to present their collections on Trend Island,” says Anna Dubrovina, brand director of Fashion Factory School.
Recall that previously Fashion Factory School and Yandex shared the results of a study on changes in the local fashion market. One in ten brands noticed positive changes in the way they do business.
