In an industry that is used to moving with the times, each season bringing new styles, colours and trends, there is a more significant shift happening away from the catwalk.
Technology is not only heralding a new era of textiles and fabrics, but changing the way garments are made, and increasingly how they are promoted and purchased.
Whether you’re producing clothing, footwear, accessories, sportswear or technical clothing, or involved somewhere in the process, the demand for products that are created ethically, responsibly and sustainably will affect you.
The market is changing, as are the needs and demands of your customers. The opportunities are significant, and in an industry that’s always setting the trends, are you ready to be ahead of the pack? Come and explore the Future of the Clothing Industry and start to shape your business’ future.
The Future Focus Event, Wear It Well, will cover a full day with a range of exciting keynote speakers and industry giants taking the stage in the morning, followed by six diverse afternoon workshops.
The first speaker to be revealed is Patrick Grant, owner and Creative Director of Norton & Sons, a Savile Row tailor and the force behind Community Clothing, a social enterprise with a mission to sustain and create jobs in the UK textile and garment manufacturing industry. You may recognise him as one of the judges on BBC 1’s The Great British Sewing Bee, and he also consults for brands such as Barbour and The Kooples. His accolades include being named Menswear Designer of the Year at the 2010 British Fashion Awards an and is an honourary Professor at Glasgow Caledonian University.
