How Does the Residency Work?
The Digital Fashion Residency introduces a free, six-week intensive program crafted to nurture the skills of creators of digital fashion. The residency offers in-depth classes across a diverse range of topics. Therefore, the residency aims to broaden the horizons of participants and lower barriers to entry in the fashion industry.

The residency experience promises interaction and growth. Successful applicants gain a 1:1 call with the organizers to personalize their journey. Additionally, the culmination of the program will be marked by a final exhibition and auction. This will showcase the work and creativity of participants honed during the intensive six weeks.
