Vogue magazine is set to host its second annual conversation between editors and industry giants dubbed ‘Forces of Fashion Conference’.
The second Forces of Fashion Conference will focus on forces of change, be they designers who are disrupting traditional business models, an environmentalist helping move the fashion industry in a more sustainable direction, or a photographer reimagining what a fashion image can look like in a digital first world.
Speaking about the second event, Editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, Anna Wintour disclosed, ” We’re thrilled and delighted to announce our second Forces of Fashion in New York on October 11. Last year we enjoyed it a lot, and we learned a lot. This time round, we’ll be discussing all of the positive and progressive changes going on in the fashion world; to focus on a moment when empowerment and creativity are really working together.”
The second edition will feature talks about transformation of haute couture between Valentino’s Pierpaolo Piccioli and Hamish Bowles and also a discussion about women in leadership positions between Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy and Eva Chen and much more. Eight panels have been scheduled to run at the second edition so far with more special guests being announced in the coming weeks.
