What Fashion Can Learn from Female-Led Companies

Saturday, March 14
9:30AM - 10:30AM

JW Marriott
Room 206
110 E 2nd St

Despite the fact that women spend the majority of consumer dollars in the United States (controlling more than 80 percent of spending), and populate the majority of fashion jobs, there's a surprisingly thick glass ceiling in fashion. There's a disconnect between the male CEOs of major retail corporations (such as Target), which often cater to female demographics such as young mothers and teen girls.

We'd pull together leaders of fashion, shopping and beauty companies--many of whom we've already profiled on the site--to discuss how big companies can learn from their successes, and how best to cater to today's women.
