The Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival’s Business event series brings together global leaders in fashion to share insights with the local design, fashion and retail industries. The March 17th seminar, produced by Event Gallery, featured Derek Blasberg, designer, and CEO of Georg Jensen, David Chu, as well as e-tailer Ruth Chapman of MATCHESFASHION.COM.
‘Fashion is dead’, declared pre-eminent trend forecaster Li Edelkoort earlier this month. The statement held within it an array of creative and economic questions for the state of the global fashion industry, and subsequently resounded across digital and social media. But the business of fashion continues to thrive, grow and articulate itself with increasing accuracy and the recent Business Seminar at this year’s Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival’s was no exception.VAMFF In Detail
