The COVIDlution of Fashion
How can the fashion industry reinvent itself in the age of COVID-19?

Bankruptcies, store closures, stay-at-home orders, and declining revenues have created an unprecedented “perfect storm,” for the industry.

In this exclusive online talk, Jefferson’s new Program Director for Fashion Design Programs, Farai Simoyi, explores the impacts of the global COVID-19 pandemic on the industry today and into the future. From designers to manufacturers, suppliers and retailers, you’ll learn how each element will help design the industry’s recovery and what might be changed forever and for the better.

Jefferson, Textile, and Philadelphia University alumni and current Jefferson students are invited to participate.
