Materials are an integral part of fashion and accessories. A unique material often takes a piece of garment or accessory to the next level. How do we incorporate special materials into fashion without eclipsing the design?
Our speakers will share with us their experience of incorporating craftsmanship in their collection, and how it not only becomes their signature but also carves out a niche for their brands.
