This is why we are happy to start new relationships with all types of organizations, both public and private, who share our passion for fashion, sustainability, design, entrepreneurship, and manufacturing. If you are interested in our project and possible collaborations, don’t hesitate to reach out.
We also believe in collaboration within companies of our same field. We often provide our support to other leading companies of today fashion industry, to improve their and our way of working thanks to a constructive exchange.
We normally are asked to attend fashion tradeshows, conventions, professional speaker panels, sustainability panels, with topics such as trend forecasting, sourcing, design, and sustainable manufacturing. Really, the diversity of topics is so huge that many different professional speaker series or events related to fashion, manufacturing, and sustainability are a common request. Many student and university organizations also reach out.
Depending on the dimension and focus of your event we will either send Ürthling at your site or propose a digital communication to reduce both our expenses and the environmental impact.
Fashion is becoming every day more competitive, fast and difficult to enter. With our academy, we want to share our know-how, our different experiences, our past mistakes, challenges, and victories. Our goal is to create bridges and communication between individuals, schools and enterprises. It is not just an Academy but a Fashion Community, the first one in its kind.
Yes, this service is completely free of charge. If your institution can contribute to our Ürthling’s reimbursement of expenses, that would extremely appreciate it.
Nevertheless, in case you are located far away from our operational sites we would suggest a digital-communication, instead of having Ürthling coming to you – for expenses and environmental reasons.
We are an international organization with teammates from all over the world. We can try to find an Ürth Speaker that speaks your language. If this is not possible, all conversations will be held in English and can be later translated with subtitles. The goal is to share information across ALL borders.
Ürthlings are experts on any matter concerning fashion: Technical and Creative Design, Circular Economy and Sustainable Fashion, Textile Production, Raw Materials Sourcing and Procurement, Pattern Making, Cutting & Sewing, Production Processes, Logistics, Marketing, Sales (WholeSales & Retails), Business Development, Customer Service, etc.
The possibilities are really endless. We have been asked about our favorite types of smoothies and coffee before. Really, we just loved creating connections with others who share our passion for their artisan crafts or industrial products.
Absolutely not! Our Speakers have the only purpose to be useful and informational to aspiring entrepreneurs, young students, and experienced professionals alike, just as much as it is to interact with those curious individuals that want to learn more about fashion.
We want to be absolutely transparent with you. Above all, you will be assigned a speaker based on the content of your event. Then, the second aspect taken into consideration will be the type of audience participating to it (in terms of age and experience). The more technical or complex is the topic treated the more experienced speaker will be attending your occurrence.
