ABOUT

 

The rapid technological development is reshaping the global fashion industry. Boundaries between fashion and tech companies are becoming increasingly blurred. New algorithms, new materials and new ideas challenge the existing.

The full-day conference will explore how new technology is transforming different parts of the fashion industry – from design and manufacturing to retail, media and marketing as well as the functionality of clothes. Passionately focused on innovation at the intersection of fashion and technology, Fashion Tech Talks is also an international meeting place, bringing together and building bridges between the fashion and tech industries.

Fashion Tech Talks is supported by H&M, the Swedish innovation agency Vinnova and Axfoundation, the Antonia Ax:son Johnson foundation for sustainable development. It is part of Symposium Stockholm, a week-long festival including events such as Polar Music Prize and the Brilliant Minds conference.
