Since 1919, The New School has been home to scholars, creators, and activists who challenge convention and boldly make their mark on the world.
To celebrate this groundbreaking legacy, we are opening our doors to the public for a weeklong festival of innovative performances, talks, workshops, screenings, exhibitions, and more.

On October 1–6, 2019, join us as we reflect on a century of world-changing ideas and together imagine a new kind of future.

This course explores emerging technology in the fashion industry. Students learn how brands assess existing consumer journeys as well as build new consumer journeys through identification of key pain points, and suggest innovative technologies to problem solve and enhance consumer experiences. Students explore the potential application of artificial intelligence (AI), Blockchain, voice and messaging, AR, and VR; and context-aware tech in creating marketing and communication strategies and enhancing convenience and personalized products and services for consumers. Students come to understand how these technologies, new ways of communicating, and innovative user journeys are supported and driven by insights, trends, and other sources of user data in order to build compelling and frictionless digital experiences and narratives. Case studies and industry speakers allow students to link theory to practice using data and participate in developing tech recommendations for fashion companies.
