KEY THEMES Key themes and topics to be addressed at the conference include: Connecting with a new generation and new geography of luxury consumers In an era of Brexit, Trump, and nationalism, how is external uncertainty impacting the luxury and fashion industry? Through connections forged through old colonial ties, and shared cultures and languages, new flows of finance and trade are emerging as sources of great opportunity in the face of turmoil in established markets. The conference will explore how today’s luxury industry should operate in a changing global environment, and how best to deal with a state of flux, as well as plan for the long term. Suzy Menkes and speakers will discuss the new luxury situation in a variety of regions – from Latin America to Africa, the Far East to North America.

The ongoing impact of technology on the luxury and fashion industry From artificial intelligence, to robotics, to new synthetic materials, to ever-changing media – technology continues to reshape the business of luxury at a ferocious pace. In sourcing, manufacturing, design, marketing and retail: how should the industry react to, take advantage of, and anticipate what’s coming next? Disrupters and visionaries will share their views. New approaches to sustainability For luxury brands, a sustainable approach to business should be a given. Consumers expect it, and the planet needs it. But what more needs to be done? And how can technology help?

The true meaning of luxury With myriad consumer expectations and definitions, how can the industry deliver “luxury”? What are the keys to determining the meaning of luxury for any one specific consumer? Is it possible for brands to represent monolithic luxury to all consumers? Or is segmentation and personalisation now the only successful approach? Speakers will discuss and debate. The visual language of luxury design Leading designers and creative directors will discuss how they use their own visual languages of design to convey values, attitudes and beliefs that resonate with their consumers. Speakers will explore how long-established luxury and fashion brands can best communicate house codes to a new generation of consumers, and how new brands should create their own distinct language.
