ABOUT

 

The rapid technological evolution is reshaping the global fashion industry. Boundaries between fashion and tech companies are becoming increasingly blurred. New materials, new business models and new features in clothing are being developed.

What can we expect from the future? How is the industry, the consumer, and the actual clothes we wear affected by fast and simultaneous development in fields such as wearable technology, materials innovation, big data and artificial intelligence?

And what do we want that future to look like?

Technology has the power to solve problems, to change, improve and radically transform.
