Digital Transformation & Disruption in Fashion and Retail

Session Description

Living the fast-paced lives we live now, it’s easy to forget how far we’ve come. In the mid ‘80s, the IBM XTs and PS2s made their way into use for early CAD and PDM solutions, and the beginnings of Fashion’s digital revolution were born. Apple subsequently branched out, introducing and improving upon other digital appliances, first into consumer electronics and music distribution with the iPod, and then into the world of mobile phones. Based upon what we know today, this was when the IoT (Internet of Things) rally came to be, allowing connected users to share their data and become truly social. Ever since, social media use has been on the up, helping to promote luxury fashion brands, RTW, e-tailers, and bricks and mortar high-street stores. This session will discuss the use of virtual assistants; real-time trend; dynamic planning and virtual design; 2D-3D design and development; synthetic costing; digital printing; spreading and cutting; advancements in RFID and robotics; supply-chain logistics; and virtual and augmented reality, all transforming to improve the connected retail experience.
