ABOUT THE TALK
Fashion is an industry that is obsessed with the new, but when it comes to tech, they tend to lag. This talk will explore how digital designers can partner with fashion businesses to transform the industry, from rethinking the shopping experience to incorporating machine learning into distribution. These areas are ripe for innovation, but it has to start with a frank discussion about how fashion and tech can work together.
