The two-day forum, themed “Fashion Challenges,” aims to spark dialogue and ignite inspiration amongst various members of the global fashion community. The business of fashion is changing at an unprecedented rate on local, regional and global levels. A new breed of creative visionaries and innovative entrepreneurs must forge ahead, while challenging norms in areas including retail, consumer engagement, image making and global branding.

Conceived with a holistic approach that embraces the entire fashion ecosystem, the forum brings together brand executives, designers, conscious entrepreneurs, image makers, merchandisers, buyers, marketers, strategists and creative leaders from various fields to provide actionable insights and innovative ideas for businesses as they navigate fashion’s ever-changing landscape.
