The world of fashion is very fast and continuously changing. The reason why is very simple: creativity doesn’t have boundaries.
The constant need to innovate, to create, to amaze and to fascinate, makes the fashion industry one of the sectors in which art and business are merged, putting into question previous boundaries and sector limits.
This is the reason why, more and more scholars and opinion leaders are envisioning the future of fashion as a field that will be no more characterized by a product-related industry, such as based on apparel and accessories, and more and more will be based on something more immaterial and traversal: experiences, and subsequently products, that will be characterized by new common business logics.
Fashion brands are already working across different industries: design, interiors, food, hospitality, beauty; this is why if it is no news that fashion is an hybrid by itself, in the future fashion will become more and more part of the broader experience, design, and lifestyle industries, managers will have to understand the rules of the new businesses, that will regulate this ecosystem.
In order to understand the business processes that from Fashion is moving to Design, Wellness, Experiences and Events, it is necessary to have a focused and multidisciplinary training: to get it, our Master in Lifestyle Management could be the best choice!

That’s why brands are moving into lifestyle, from fashion, to design, wellness, experiences and event management too.
