Master in Information Design in partnership with IBM – January 2019


The business of fashion has experienced extreme changes in recent years. We can both measure the custumer journey behavior and track the initiatives of the retailers giving them suggestions on how to improve. A huge source of disruption in the fashion industry is, of course, social media. To capitalize on the disruption that social brings to the industry, fashion brands must understand how to use the enormous quantity of data from social channels to engage and interact with customers in a better way.

IBM Cognitive Systems have the ability to read large amounts of data, structuring them in order to find impactful insights and help to develop better services.
Using the data from almost 1,000,000 digital conversations about fashion on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest and other social platforms IBM studied the relationship between fashion brands and their audiences, to help guide brands who want to increase engagement with social data. We can build smarter networks, offer smarter operations and deliver smarter shopping experiences!
