Innovating for a new era

Business models, consumer values and technologies are all shifting against a backdrop of inflation, political uncertainty, and environmental decline. However, it’s well documented that tough times can create opportunities for innovation.
How can the fashion retail industry innovate for this new era?

The industry united on 8 June 2023 to explore the topics, tech, people and processes that are driving the future of fashion. We took a deep-dive into:

  • Consumer-centric omnichannel in the post-pandemic rebalancing of digital and physical
  • The power of collaboration, culture and community: underpinning your values and reaching new demographics
  • The digital future of fashion retail: how do you meet consumers where they want to be?
  • Exploring today's growth opportunities, and how to meet the consumer shift towards sustainability
  • Integrating cutting-edge technology to drive efficiency, from customer experience to supply chain 

About the conference

Drapers Future of Fashion is a content-packed day of insight and idea-sharing, bringing together over 250 professionals from leading fashion retail brands and retailers.

The fashion industry joined us to explore opportunities to innovate and resonate with consumers in today’s changing world.
