From poor working practices to the painfully slow adoption of AI, the fashion industry is reaching a tipping point. Brands in the sector will increasingly need to look beyond its boundaries to inspire meaningful and memorable change.

: How can fashion brands create long-term partnerships with disruptive, different and daring innovators from outside the sector?

: How much are they willing to invest in the enhancement of their workforce to better prepare their business for the future?

: With its higher level of precision, is automation a more sustainable option than manual labour?

Our in-house Fashion Futures presentation explores these topics in detail to better understand the issues that are keeping fashion CEOs up at night, and features pertinent market insights and the strategic foresight needed to apply them.
