Microsoft Invests in Fashion Education

LONDON — Microsoft believes that technology can empower the next generation of creatives and is joining forces with the London College of Fashion to give students access to its latest innovations.
As part of the partnership, the two organizations have created a short-term program dubbed the “Future of Fashion Incubator” where students studying across the school’s media, design and business departments can work together to come up with creative solutions addressing current industry and consumer needs.
The program will take place over the course of a semester and will allow students to explore a range of Microsoft technologies, such as artificial intelligence and mixed reality, before choosing one area of study to concentrate on.
“It has been fantastic to see how the students are answering an industry or consumer need and ideating a solution which technology is part of — but they didn’t start the challenge with the tech in mind. This is key for us to ensure that the solutions we work on have longevity and a true purpose,” said Maruschka Loubser, senior global marketing manager at Microsoft, pointing to the wide range of topics students chose to address with their projects, including retail experiences, supply chain managements and the design process.
