The global fashion market is worth roughly three trillion US dollars each year, representing 2% of the world's Gross Domestic Product. The prime contenders among this rich industry’s sub-sectors are womenswear (621 billion), menswear (402 billion), childrenswear (186 billion), and sportswear (90.4 billion). To get an idea of the overall magnitude of the value created, just consider that wedding apparel on its own generates a sales volume of 57 billion US dollars, not to mention all those activities that are usually only partially associated with the fashion world, such as beauty products and some trendy household accessories.
Furthermore, Italy is definitely the right place to deepen one’s knowledge of and study fashion management, due to both tradition and culture, and economic factors. In the past, the fashion market has consistently represented one of the most important fields of the Made in Italy domain; the same can be said today, as 2017 sales figures total 87 billion euros (an increase of 3% over 2016).*
