Re-Frame Fashion, is an international project, carried out by three universities - Erasmus University Rotterdam (NL), Paris Dauphine University (FR), Gdansk University of Technology (PL) - together with fashion industry partners. The aim of the international project Re-Frame Fashion is to investigate the current needs of the fashion industry and develop three high-quality courses in fashion.
The main objectives are:
- To develop a need analysis in close cooperation with fashion industry partners;
- To develop and pilot three high quality courses addressing current educational and labour-market needs;
- To foster a functioning network of complementary academic partners and other stakeholders;
To encourage non-academic stakeholders to contribute to the curriculum, quality enhancement and internships.
This project results in three high quality fashion courses (heritage in fashion, sustainability in fashion, entrepreneurship in fashion) which will be the steppingstones towards developing an International Master in Fashion Industry (IMFI). The overreaching goal is to provide an innovative route for students who would like to work in the global fashion industry as creative managers, entrepreneurs, consultants, policy makers, and researchers.
Re-Frame Fashion has been awarded a ERASMUS+ KA2 Strategic Partnership Grant. The ERASMUS+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships aim to support the development, transfer and/or implementation of innovative practices as well as the implementation of joint initiatives promoting cooperation, peer learning and exchanges of experience at European level. What makes this project unique, is the collaboration between the three European Universities. Erasmus University Rotterdam (NL), Paris Dauphine University (FR), Gdansk University of Technology (PL) and fashion industry partners. Members of the project closely collaborate with fashion industry partners such as the European Fashion Heritage Association, Studio Vegter, Victoria and Albert Museum, BOHOBOCO, marketing agency You’ll and Le Coq Sportif.
