The first independent training platform for those who, just like us, are determined to challenge the status quo of the fashion industry sowing ideas, awareness and a good dose of provocation for change.
So, we gotta warn you: do not join this course if you’re not up for a challenge!
SOW School of WRÅD is not recommended for those seeking easy solutions to the problems of the fashion industry. This is because an easy way out of a complex issue isn’t realistic. Frustrating, uh? We know. And that’s precisely why we created S.O.W. School Of WRÅD in the first place: after endless sleepless nights, tormented by our own doubts on how to move forward, we felt the need to share with you all the contradictions of our job and the tools developed so far to overcome them.
Our common objective? Redefining, together, the role of clothing in the XXI century.
We disseminate awareness through education on the culture of sustainability. Sharing the ideas, models and learnings of many experts who approach the discipline with a systemic mindset, we strive to create a collaborative workspace to redesign the foundation of the fashion industry, balancing the stakes of all species (human and extra-human) of the planet.
1x1 Business Model:
Being digital enables us to scale the sowing of the seeds of change, making our community more inclusive and accessible.
With every S.O.W. School of WRÅD sold we will gift a workshop on sustainability to students from less advantaged contexts around the world.
We’re ambitious. Our long term goal is to create an open-source space to connect students, professors, designers, innovators, free thinkers and rebels all over the world. We want to build a platform to empower people’s choices and to feed their (and our) spirit of initiative.
