Re-Imagining Global Fashion Business: New Models, Values and Ideas

                                  An Interdisciplinary Conference (Online) Coventry University London, UK in Asssociation with the Fashion Research Network            Thursday 22nd-Friday 23rd July 2021

Re-Imagining Global Fashion Business: New Models, Values and Ideas is an interdisciplinary conference bringing together fashion business, entrepreneurs, academics, researchers, and disrupters who seek to ask critical questions including: What are the drivers behind fashion's challenges and opportunities? Does there need to be a full re-think of the processes and systems, which support the fashion sector? What new business models need to be evolved? What role does technology and sustainability play within this? Who are the new leaders and mentors to guide us in this?

Join us and our Keynote Speakers Dr Patsy Perry (Manchester Metropolitan University, UK), Dr Marco Pedroni (University of Ferrara, Italy) and Dr Socrates Karidis (Coventry University London) for an interdisciplinary conference at Coventry University London in association with the Fashion Research Network to evolve, disrupt and contribute to the debate on the critical issues facing the global fashion industry today.
