The Virtuous & Vicious Cycles of Fashion

The Virtuous & Vicious Cycles of Fashion

Understanding the relationship between your individual scenarios, work environments and consumer needs. 

A two-day Professional Development Workshop exploring and connecting you with the internal and external resources around the place and function you have inside fashion systems. 

This programme is the result of Fabian Hirose's 15 years experience in the Global Fashion Industry and his 5 years of intensive research working with boards, senior executives and teams in the creative, financial, communications, retail and HR departments of local & international fashion businesses; as well as directors, readers, lecturers and students of leading fashion schools in the UK. 

The Virtuous & Vicious Cycles of Fashion will create conditions which support the principles and laws of self-organisation for your own natural development and the evolution of your path in fashion. This practical and experiential workshop draws on design-thinking; business and education models; somatic, personal and systemic healing; and will include:

  • Creative meditation
  • Breathing and body exercise
  • Systemic constellations (living maps)
  • Executive coaching
  • Professional mentoring
  • Individual and collaborative dialogues/feedback

At the end of this two-day programme you will: 

  • Understand the real nature of your challenges
  • Gain insight and perspective on what helps or holds back your potential
  • Discover new avenues for constructive action
  • Reconnect to your personal and professional strengths
  • Find the most empowering place for your best present and future opportunities
  • Develop an action plan for your individual and professional development

You may find this workshop especially valuable if you or your team are:

  • Under-resourced regarding the challenges you or your business are navigating; or
  • Stuck or stressed by intractable and complex situations, and uncertain about what it will take to manage them effectively.

This event is open to those in senior and junior roles in the fashion industry. Limited availability 30 places only.
