“Having spent last year in the Silicon Valley I came to realization that future of fashion industry is exclusively in technological progress and in the ability to use all of the new technologies that emerge with incredible speed. Our target with Fashion Tech Summit is to give maximum knowledge and experience to our clients from industry`s experts from Europe and the Silicon Valley. I am looking forward to this event very much. For me Fashion Tech Summit is the quintessence of all the knowledge I got over the past year and I can`t wait to share it.”
“Fashion industry changed dramatically in the past four years. Certainly, the good old wholesale and retail schemes are still working, but mainly for big companies. The new players are obliged to use other rules that are forming new shape of the industry. That’s why we arrange Fashion Tech Summit: to push boundaries of fashion industry perception and present new abilities, innovative business models, basing on foreign and native examples. I believe the new startup contest on Fashion Tech Summit to help enhance the process of formation of new creative entrepreneurs wave.”
