Four new celebrated names have been added to the 2017 speaker line-up. We welcome designer Prabal Gurung, Public School's designer duo, Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, and the former dean of the School of Fashion at Parsons School of Design, Simon Collins. They will take part in the panel debate "Fashion for a cause", that will explore fashion's role in current culture and politics, with panellists sharing their unique experiences and discussing the importance of challenging the meaning of fashion in our society.
The Summit 2017 speaker line-up is taking further shape as four new high-level names are released today. Michael Kowalski will talk in conversation with Vanessa Friedman about responsible mining, why it took luxury so long to become public about its actions and consumer reactions. Eileen Fisher in conversation with Julie Gilhart will discuss how to rethink and redefine the fashion system and how the next generation of designers can help question some established ways of working within fashion.
