There’s a New Course for Jewelry Forecasting
Paola De Luca’s “The Roadmap to Seasons 2024” is an eight-week online offering.
“The Roadmap to Seasons 2024+” is an eight-week class commencing March 14 and running through June 6.
A complimentary master class will take place today, Monday, Feb. 28, at 10 a.m. EST on the topic of “Jewelry Design Directions & Products 2022,” which will include an introduction to the upcoming course’s program and faculty.
Registration for the free webinar is available online.
From forecaster Paola De Luca, “The RoadMap to Seasons 2024+” looks further ahead, so jewelry and luxury entrepreneurs and marketers can take a wider view of how trends will develop over the next several seasons.
Broken into eight modules, each will include a masterclass that can be purchased separately.
“The course is democratically priced, designed for individual professionals, designers, marketers, and SME’s [small-to-medium business entrepreneurs] who are actively working on projects, collections, and marketing campaigns for the upcoming seasons,” De Luca said in a press release.
“Through dynamic presentations and lectures with industry experts, applicants will be able to develop their own projects, guided by professionals who will be sharing feedback on project assignments and a final capstone.”
The modules will feature live sessions from experts and faculty leaders on different topics, like decoding consumer culture, the future of design, product directions, and culture and lifestyle.
Included in the curriculum are 40 additional on-demand videos, eight PDF documents, The Futurist Workbook, and the Preview Seasons 2024 Masterclass with downloadable PDF.
Sign-up is available now online, with the course priced at €400, or approximately $448 at current exchange rates.
“The interactive sessions are designed to reproduce a classroom experience where applicants from around the world are able to inspire one another. It’s important for us to bring an element of human connection to the online space,” De Luca said.
