What to expect?

Announcing our webinar, in partnership with Common Objective and Techstyler, on navigating uncertainty in the fashion industry as the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic. The onslaught of COVID-19 has proven that the fashion industry will never look or function the same way again and the deeply embedded systems will necessarily have to be completely redesigned.

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.
