Gucci Group sponsors new Ph.D. scholarship

With an eye to future experimental textile technologies, the Gucci Group said it will sponsor a new Ph.D. scholarship devoted to innovations in sustainable fashion and textiles in cooperation with two London schools: Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and the University of the Arts London, reports Women's Wear Daily.

The three-year £30,000 scholarship underscores Gucci Group’s contention that sustainable technology is key for luxury brands as concerns mount about the environment and climate change.The first scholarship is to commence in September 2010, with applications due around January.
