Fashion Futures

Fashion Futures is a powerful six-day program delivering a wealth of expertise in design, technology and entrepreneurship.

This unique combination of a Henley Business School, Parsons School of Design and Technology, and Africa Fashion Week London allow participants to gain a holistic education of the future of the fashion and creative industry.

This course is specifically designed for African-inspired designers looking for future-proof their business whilst learning the latest theories and practices on ethics and sustainability of the global fashion industry and how the technological directions in fashion translate in the African supply chain.

How we delivered Fashion Futures

Fashion Futures successfully completed the first cohort of 25 students in July 2020; delivered in real-time utilizing Henley South Africa’s formidable virtual delivery hub.

This prototype attracted 123 registration, many of which successfully received very generous scholarships. The scholarships (50% and 75% of the $1000 program fee) were put in place to demonstrate a commitment to the African creative industries and to follow the values of the Henley South Africa purpose statement:
