About this event

TECH AND FASHION

The potential for all-encompassing integration of fashion and technology is unlike anything we have seen before. Discover from these industry leaders, how fashion tech is changing what we wear, how we buy it and how innovation can be interjected at every level of product development.

Overview:​ At this exclusive panel event, we host thought-leaders from a specific industry — such as finance, food, or art — to explore new intersections between their field and technology. Together, we discuss how they’ve been impacted by the rise of tech, ways they’ve adapted and innovated along the way, and what they expect to see in the future.

What You’ll Take Away: Gain insight and inspiration from experts in specific fields and hear first-hand how technology is transforming their work. Expand your understanding of today’s tech-based world, and fuel your own ideas for the future.

Featured Experts: Leaders in the Fashion and Technology community will break down the biggest challenges and opportunities they face with the implementation of new technology, and explain how their teams adapt to the fast pace of innovation.

We've partnered with the Austin Fashion Initiative to round up some of the most innovative companies, designers and fashion industry insiders to share some the ways they're embedding cutting edge technology into the product development process, as well as the future of the industry.

Why It Matters: The omnipresence of technology has rapidly transformed lives over the last decade (remember, the iPhone was only released in 2007). Now, it’s rare to go about a regular day without interacting with tech — whether it’s an alarm app that wakes you up, your Nest Thermostat-regulated apartment, or the software you use at work. Staying ahead of the innovation curve and being able to predict the future of tech in various industries has never been more important — both at work and at play.

As an industry, fashion in many ways is siloed off from our understanding of how and where technology can be implemented to create market disruptions and impactful efficiencies to product development processes. This panel serves to create a dialogue around new opportunities for innovation throughout the fashion supply chain.

Agenda:

  • Check-in & Networking 6:30 - 6:45 pm
  • Panel 6:45 - 7:30 pm
  • Q&A and Networking 7:30 - 8:00 pm
