The Digital Fashion Group has entered into a partnership with the platform Arts Thread with the aim to expand the reach of digital fashion education. The Digital Fashion Group is known as an innovator in delivering online education and onboarding people to web3 and the digital fashion space, particularly with their course Digital Fashion 101. Arts Thread is a London-based network for new creatives.
As Fashion United reports, The Digital Fashion Group co-founder Leslie Holden says of the partnership that "TDFG matches Arts Threads’ values of creativity and employability," adding "We hope to connect with higher education institutes and consult with them on how to bring these courses to their students." The aim of the group is to upend the value chain and to give technologists involved in digital fashion a stronger fashion background.
Registration is open for the course 3DESIGN: The Fundamentals of Digital Fashion Design at the TDFG academy page. Arts Thread is currently organizing the Global Design Graduate Show 2022 in collaboration with Gucci. The show is open to all graduating students in art and design.
