Fashion for Our Future: Caroline Rush in Conversation with the Institute of Digital Fashion
Digital technology is transforming our lives, and the fashion industry is at the forefront of this change. Join Caroline Rush, chief executive of the British Fashion Council, and Leanne Elliott Young and Cattytay, co-founders of the Institute of Digital Fashion, as they discuss how technology can shape a more sustainable, inclusive and diverse future for the sector.
Digital technology has transformed our everyday lives and the pandemic has accelerated this. The fashion industry is at the forefront of embracing the change, from the first ever fully digital, gender neutral London Fashion Week in June 2020, to the Institute of Digital Fashion’s digital try-ons, totalling 1.8 million wears in one day. The revolution in IRL x URL experiences, services and products is continuing to impact the way we consume, wear and produce fashion.
Join Caroline Rush, chief executive of the British Fashion Council, and Leanne Elliott Young and Cattytay, co-founders of the Institute of Digital Fashion, as they discuss how we can use digital technology to shape a more sustainable and democratic future for the fashion industry.
