Fashion Coordinator

Fashion Coordinators work as Collection Coordinators.
They are flexible professionals in the fashion industry with skills that can be applied in different sectors of the company, such as the styling, product development, production, sales and marketing departments.
They combine a strong inclination for fashion with knowledge of the main processes involved in the development of a collection, of the stages and techniques used for the materials and of the production itself.
They carry out feasibility studies on prototypes, also with the aid of 2D and 3D CAD systems for the virtual representation of models.
They participate in the marketing plan, analysing strategies for products and markets. Furthermore, they use the latest digital technologies to promote and market the fashion product.
