What the heck is FashionTech?
FashionTech Asia Conference in Hong Kong – first time ever in Asia!
In the 18th and 19th centuries, the first and second industrial revolutions transformed textile manufacturing. The 20th century brought us the third industrial revolution, giving us the gift of information technology and forever revolutionizing the way we communicate and consume fashion.
And now in the digital age, as fashion and technology are truly colliding, powered by a new assemblage across the physical, digital and biological world, we are ready for a new chapter: The Fourth Industrial Revolution for Fashion!
The nascent revolution is looking to transform the fashion world altogether. The global markets and economic conditions are just apt to harness and witness the unlimited possibilities of technologically fashionable new industry.
With a staggering confluence of the promising technology and breakthroughs from wide-ranging fields such as robotics, self-driving vehicles, artificial intelligence, 3D printing, internet of things, biotechnology, nanotechnology and material sciences, fashion industry, in particular, stands to benefit the most.
However, these innovations require collaboration. A commitment to work together between the scientists, technologists, manufacturers and designers and most importantly, “what the consumer wants.”
After seeing the FashionTech success in the mecca of fashion capitals, London, Paris and New York, FashionTech Asia is ready to host Asia’s first fashion and technology event, “FashionTech Asia” in Hong Kong on January 16, 2017.
