Invisible Technologies of Apparel

Mar 12, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

This panel discusses how innovation in technology is changing the fashion industry — from high-tech fabrics and connected devices to the way products are made and sold. What are the benefits for consumers, designers, and brands? And, what are the impacts of these new technologies? In this panel, we’ll discuss how the apparel industry is embracing innovation, the hurdles that still exist, and what we can expect to see in the future. Four panelists from Ringly, Dropel Fabrics, Thursday Finest and Physiclo will share their perspectives on industry trends, what it takes to develop these technologies, and practical advice for launching a new product.
