Remember the college Condé Nast set up in London to offer “people an understanding of the fashion industry within one year that might take seven or eight years to learn on the job”? Well, now it’s launching a Shanghai branch. The big differences between the new school and Condé Nast’s London school is that it will offer a technical creative course in advanced fashion design and most of the student body will be Chinese, as opposed to an international mix. Overall, the aim of Condé Nast China is to close the “‘expertise gap' between the requirements of China’s rapidly-evolving fashion industry and current graduates in the country.” [Business of Fashion]
