Description

Fashion’s rapid and dramatic transformation continues to create new winners and losers and investors are constantly looking for the disruptive concepts that are here to stay: AR/VR/AI, 3D printing, wearables, outsourcing, insourcing, ethical sourcing, accelerating trend turnover, fit solutions, visual search, customization, personalization, contextual commerce, sustainability, fast fashion, and of course, data.
