Guest lecture on the topic of digitalisation in the fashion industry

We were very grateful to be able to welcome Mr Mario Porst, a proven marketing expert from the creative industry, to give a guest lecture at our fashion school.

Mario Porst is Head of Marketing and Sales at MONA in Pforzheim. MONA is internationally active in the women's clothing sector and belongs to the Klingel Group. Mr Porst introduced the Klingel Group and gave many of our students interesting insights on the topic of digitalisation in the fashion industry in his keynote lecture. The topic of digitalisation first featured in the creative industry a long time ago: digital tools, virtual teamwork, 3D-programmes etc. are becoming increasingly important.

Mr Porst subsequently also presented the career opportunities at the Klingel Group for graduates of our fashion schools. At a final get-together, our students had the opportunity to speak directly to Mr Porst and get some useful tips from the expert himself.
