Fashion Tech Innovation Programme
A Paris Education First }
International Fashion Academy Paris (IFA Paris) approached us with the seedling idea and ambition to be the leader in fashion tech education within Paris. We took this ambition and ran with an even more pioneering proposal to launch their first Fashion Tech Innovation programme (FTI Programme). This included courses, research lab and startup incubator all set to be phase launched throughout 2019 and 2020.
Research | Strategy | Partnerships | Project Management
The project began with a deep dive into Paris’ current fashion tech educational offering. The research pointed into several avenues possible, which formed the basis of this groundbreaking programme.
We put in place a programme strategy and execution plan for the launch. As fashion tech is a fairly new discipline in fashion, the strategy was based on the technology industry, which we then applied within a fashion context.
The programme opens up a plethora of interesting and exciting potential partnerships. Beyond Form has been charged with building out. This has required identification of potential key stakeholders, working closely with the IFA Paris team to ensure that visions are aligned. This included ensuring that the pending program fulfils commercial and academic objectives.
