LONDON, 29 APRIL 2020: SupplyCompass, the design and production platform for fast-growing fashion brands, has announced it will be hosting a webinar on 12 May in partnership with Common Objective and Techstyler, centred on navigating uncertainty in the fashion industry as the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic.
Speakers include Flora Davidson, Co-Founder of SupplyCompass, and Tamsin Lejeune, CEO & Founder of Common Objective, the platform that helps fashion professionals to do business better. The webinar will take place at 4.30pm (BST) on 12 May 2020 and will be run by Brooke Roberts-Islam, Forbes journalist and Founder of Techstyler, a publishing platform and consultancy for sustainability and fashion-tech.
This conversation between industry thought leaders with expansive experience across fashion supply chains, technology and sustainability aims to delve into the changing business landscapes that COVID-19 has become responsible for. Encompassing the far-reaching impacts on supply chains, the importance of resilience and relationship building, transitions to digitalisation and a focus on sustainability as one of the biggest drivers, this immersive webinar will help to shape shared visions for a more adaptable, responsible fashion industry.
The impacts of COVID-19 on the fashion industry will be long-lasting. No business will look or function the same way again, as the deeply embedded systems will have been completely redesigned out of necessity. In this webinar, we want to explore and help navigate this uncertainty in the fashion industry, ultimately providing uplifting insights and possible solutions. I am hopeful that the pandemic will be a catalyst for change, and that the next few months will usher in a new, better era for the fashion industry – one which places sustainability and technology as the heart of this transformation
