Kering joins forces with inspiring international partners to empower young talent and craft tomorrow’s luxury.
At Kering, we cherish our rich heritage of exquisite craftsmanship and we safeguard extraordinary creative know-how for future generations. Across the Kering group, there are many professional training programs designed to share unique skills and expertise, while also supporting responsible and sustainable employment.
At the Scuola di Alta Sartoria, Brioni is training the next generation of master tailors through a three year tailoring course and a one-year internship in an atelier. Today, over one hundred highly skilled and talented graduates of Alta Sartoria work with the House of Brioni in their ateliers and stores. Gucci and Bottega Veneta have similar programs with the Alta Scuola di Pelletteria and the Scuola Della Pelletteria where they share their mastery and unique expertise in leather craftsmanship - and empower the next generation to make their own distinctive mark on luxury.
Kering also recognizes the value of nurturing bold ideas outside the Group. We form robust partnerships with the world’s leading schools in fashion, design and luxury management to incubate tomorrow’s talent. Kering and the London College of Fashion are co-curators of the Empowering Imagination curriculum. The cutting-edge program is dedicated to furthering sustainable fashion practices in the luxury sector.
Kering also sponsors the HEC x Kering Certificate of Influential Luxury: an innovative six-week course that focuses on the latest developments in the luxury sector and equips students with skills and expertise to become tomorrow’s dynamic leaders in luxury management.
Kering is passionate about spotting and supporting emerging talent and is an official partner of the prestigious ANDAM fashion award (National Association for the Development of the Fashion Arts). In addition to giving young creative talent an international platform and visibility, winners also have the unique opportunity to showcase their work during Paris Fashion Week.
In the United States, the annual edition of the Kering and Parsons Empowering Imagination award enables graduates of the Parsons BFA Fashion Design Program to visit Kering’s Houses and facilities.
The winners of the award are selected for their singular conceptual vision and their accomplished design and technical skills.
Through a wide range of innovative, international partnerships in all regions, from China to the US, UK, Italy and France, Kering is shaping our next generation of connected, talented, responsible and driven luxury players.
As we continue to transform our worldwide logistics network, we recognize the need to nurture talent in the fast-changing field of supply chain and logistics. Our two-year talent program – The Kering Horizon Program – invests in high-potential engineering graduates to develop the next generation of logistics leaders. Launched in October 2021, the program aims to fast-track talent for future supply chain and logistics roles through job rotations, mentoring and intensive training programs.
The graduates, selected from international engineering schools, are based at Kering Group Operations in Italy and Switzerland, and gain operational and functional experience across the four key areas of supply chain and logistics at Kering: Central Operations, Globe Transformation Program, Supply Chain Methods and Innovation and Business Planning.
With an opportunity for a regional assignment at the end of the rotations, the program equips graduates with the know-how and skills to continue a career path in logistics management, and play their part in our long-term vision of environmentally responsible, innovative global logistics.
