We are delighted to announce the new partnership between GFA Academy and Fashion Values – a sustainability education programme developed by Centre for Sustainable Fashion in partnership with Kering, IBM and Vogue Business.
Together, The Fashion Values partners bring together a network of sustainability experts, fashion professionals, educators, academics and students from across the fashion system.

GFA Academy will work closely with Fashion Values to empower students and emerging fashion businesses to develop their sustainability literacy, stimulate innovation and generate new fashion systems.
