The already stellar Business of Fashion has launched an entirely new Education section, which allows users to learn about fashion, among other useful tools. The new section from BoF also launched with a global ranking of the best fashion schools, a number of features that explore fashion education today, and an index of the terms used in the industry. What will be most relevant to most of us, though, is the series of free online classes the website created.
You can now take courses in the basics of the fashion business, marketing in the industry, its history, and a course for anyone trying to start their own brand called "Fashion Entrepreneurship." All the classes will take you anywhere from an hour and a half to two and a half hours and are supported by advertisers so that they come at absolutely no cost to those interested.
We can't stress enough how incredible of a service this is. If you're willing to put in the work, you no longer have to be the guy who launches a struggle brand without any sort of knowledge about how to do so. All it takes is a viable Internet connection. Head over to Business of Fashion and start exploring its new section now. If it motivates you to get a full formal education, all you need to do is take a peek at the sidebar, which ranks all the fashion schools you should be gunning for. The list is topped by Central Saint Martens in London, with Tokyo's Bunka Fashion College, London's Kingston University, and New York's Parsons following in that order.
