We want to offer students a concrete and enriching experience to express their learning and ideas. It is also a great opportunity to create an open door on the fashion industry and its main challenges. We want to be the main point of contact point between passionate students and innovative and fashion-forward companies. Finally, it is a great way to transcend the boundaries of schools and languages for a student adventure.
Fashion Spectrum is a multidisciplinary academic competition focused on the fashion industry. It's the result of the four Montreal business faculties working together : Desautels (McGill), ESG UQAM, HEC Montréal and John Molson (Concordia).
The teams will have to solve real cases written by five exclusive companies. Mentors will also follow our participants during the 3 months preceding the competition to prepare them. A panel of judges will be present to give an expert opinion on the teams' performance and to elect the winners.
Cocktails will also be organized to build essential links between companies and students for recruitement purposes and to give a valuable experience.
