Kering and London College of Fashion, UAL (LCF) have teamed up to create the world’s first open-access digital course in sustainable luxury fashion. Named ‘Fashion & Sustainability: Understanding Luxury Fashion in a Changing World’, the new course was announced during an event hosted by the British Fashion Council during London Fashion Week.
The new course was developed to strengthen sustainability in education within the luxury and fashion industry in order to drive the wider adoption of more sustainable practices. Co-developed by LCF academics and Kering sustainability experts, the course is built on six key modules including: Why Sustainability Matters in Fashion, Contextualising Sustainability for a Changing World, Sustainable Sourcing for Luxury Fashion, and Informed Decision-Making.

“At Kering we believe that the shift towards sustainability and innovation in luxury fashion is not only an imperative, in our world of finite resources, but also a goldmine of opportunity,” said François-Henri Pinault, Chairman and CEO of Kering speaking at the course launch on Tuesday. “We actively work with our Houses to craft tomorrow’s luxury via our 2025 sustainability strategy, but also wish to contribute to the evolution of luxury fashion as a whole, by sharing our expertise with industry counterparts and educating future generations. Today I am proud that Kering’s partnership with London College of Fashion takes a new step, making education accessible outside of the classroom with this the world’s first open-access digital course on sustainable luxury fashion.”
