University of Leeds Online Course on Fashion Industry
This course is just one of a series about ‘innovation’. You can sign up to the other courses in this series through the Going to University collection.
The course introduces a case study showing how Marks & Spencer has been a key innovator in fashion, introducing new fabrics that make our lives easier and more comfortable. You will see how M&S continues to drive innovation to bring consumers new and better products. You will also consider your own clothing and its innovation story, producing and sharing with other learners your research and findings on how a favourite item of clothing is the result of innovative developments in the industry.
