From AI to neurodiversity, how should fashion brands prepare for the future?

Read our report


From poor working practices to the lacklustre adoption of artificial intelligence, the fashion industry is reaching a tipping point, with brands having to look far beyond the next season.

The Fashion Futures report goes to the core of what is making the fashion industry so cautious in its progression and so conventional in its thinking. It examines what is keeping fashion CEOs up at night and what they can do to turn things around. From prioritising access over ownership to embracing neurodiversity in the workplace, this report looks beyond fashion’s boundaries to other sectors, so that brands can instigate meaningful and memorable change.
