Achieving and Retrieving Creativity through European fashion Cultural Heritage Inspiration – known as the ART-CHERIE project – addresses the issue of digitalization, improving the offer of learning opportunities in the Fashion sector, while taking advantage of the huge European heritage available as a source of inspiration for designers.

The overall objective of the ART-CHERIE project is to bridge the gap between fashion industry needs and the lack of specific designers’ expertise in fashion industry SMEs, using innovative approaches resulting from the project and which the EU Fashion Industry urgently needs.
