What's Digital About Fashion Design? / by Mary Jane Edwards


Interested in Fashion, Technology and the Digital Economy?

We're hosting a roundtable event in partnership with The London College of Fashion and their collaborative platform, FIREup led by Professor Sandy Black entitled - What's Digital about Fashion Design? on Tuesday 27th October 2015.

This event offers insight into current uses of technology within the designer fashion community and a facilitated discussion on the opportunities presented by the digital economy to create new business and economic models.

While the largest global fashion companies are able to invest heavily in digital infrastructure, there is also a pressing need for smaller operators within the designer fashion community – the vast majority of the sector – to innovate and embed digital thinking in their operations, rather than developing products and then working out how to ‘go online’.

If this topic is of interest to you do get it touch with us as we have a few spaces left!

This research workshop is funded by NEMODE Network+ is an initiative under the Research Councils UK (RCUK)’s Digital Economy (DE) research programme to bring together communities to explore new economic models in the Digital Economy.
