Getting Techy With IT – How Technology is Changing Fashion

By Kristina Dimitrova
Founder & CEO, Interlaced

Fashion has been intertwined with technology since the invention of the Jacquard punched card loom but over the past couple of years the interest in fashion tech has grown significantly. This emerging field is transforming each part of the industry, from production processes and the creation of new materials, through to the democratisation of the fashion show as we know it.

In this session, Kristina will explore some of the most significant moves from the field of fashion tech and touch upon emerging technologies such as 3D printing, the evolution of wearable tech, virtual reality and what this means for the industry going forward.
