with a combination of self-guided content and interactive group sessions led by Clara.

1. A New Role for a New Fashion Future

The fashion industry is going through unprecedented change and there are huge opportunities for external consultants to help brands unlock innovation thinking around product and build their unique sustainability framework.

This first Module sets the global context in a post-pandemic world, explores the future jobs market and introduces the Future Fashion Consultant role and Clara’s client success stories.

2. Understand Strategy & Product

A sustainability strategy is like a blueprint for how a fashion brand will work towards a range of environmental and societal goals and we believe it all starts with the product.

In this module we explore what a sustainability strategy is, the different approaches for developing one and the key aspects of any strategy including sourcing, people and circularity.

3. Learn to See the Big Picture

Once you start seeing fashion products as part of a bigger system, then you can begin to make improvements.

In this module, you will learn about systems and lifecycle thinking and how the lifecycle framework encourages designers and product developers to be more intentional in the design, development and sourcing stages.

4. Better By Design

Decisions made by designers account for over 80% of the environmental impacts of fashion products.

In this module you will learn design strategies for creating better fashion products and be introduced to the unique innovation workshop method that Clara has used with design and product teams globally.

5. Build Your Toolbox: Future Fashion Innovation Workshop

The Future Fashion Consultant works with small and large fashion brands educating teams and facilitating a change in business practices.

In this module we will go through all elements of the innovation workshop method and the key tools you’ll need as an external consultant including your service offer and fee schedule.

“The whole course content was incredible. I did not know where I sat as a designer in the current climate and how to engage with that, and now I feel far more confident and inspired.”
