Fashion Management with Marketing University Tour to New York & Washington

Example study tour 

Created for Solent University

 

Solent University required a group travel package to a vibrant city that could offer enviable experiences and deep insight into the fashion industry.

StudyLink created a 10-day study tour package to New York and Washington, enabling students to liaise with leading members of the fashion community and see behind the ‘seams’ as to what goes on in the cutting room. The students were exposed to international fashion business, learning how businesses in the USA operate in comparison to the UK.
