Manufacturing & Production

Spring 2020

Taught By: Bjorn Bengtsson

Section: A

CRN: 7159

Credits: 3

This course will explore prevailing frameworks of innovation such as reverse, open, and disruptive innovation, as well as Doblin’s ten types of innovation, to identify and categorize contemporary practices. We will examine the ways in which innovators describe their own innovations and processes to compare and assess in terms of their validity and applicability within the business of Fashion. In addition, we will look at various ways that new technology is changing the landscape. Tech-friendly tastemakers can re-create the emotional bond between the arts and the consumer. In a society where billions of people can communicate instantly around the globe and an app can reach millions of customers overnight, the paradigm of pop culture has changed. We will identify technological breakthroughs and interventions within the lifecycle of products and through the lens of the consumer/ user journey. This course will include an onsite visit to Manufacture NY, a 160,000 square foot Brooklyn-based fashion-tech incubator; XRC Labs, an innovation accelerator for the next generation of disruptors and guest speakers with expertise in bio media designer and fashion technology. Through research, analysis and case study exploration, we will practice methods for value creation through innovation and technological interventions within various domains.

Masters degree in Fashion Management majors only.
