Hello Fashion, Textile and Costume Librarians’ Special Interest Group members.
WWD is working with the academic community to enhance a school’s fashion programs via curated WWD content based on select courses that your schools are offering. Fashion academics say that textbooks do not keep pace with the challenges and evolutions that are influencing fashion and retail in today’s fashion industry. To help bring value to the classroom, WWD’s editors have outlined special areas of interest that present some of fashion’s biggest game changers today. Working closely with each school, we custom-curate a weekly newsletter that delivers top-of-mind trending stories skewed to your pre-determined course. The professor receives a new WWD Education Post each week and can then decide which topics/features he/she wishes to post on the school proxy and review in class. It is intended to give flexibility in choices, but provide actual, case examples that are relevant to both the industry and the student. WWD invites librarian and faculty feedback on how we could curate this weekly content newsletter based on your school program. To start the conversation, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
