Vogue Business Fashion Futures is a series of events that explore the trends, challenges and opportunities that are transforming the fashion industry. The events bring together experts, innovators and leaders from across the fashion ecosystem to share insights, best practices and solutions for the future of fashion.
The latest edition of Vogue Business Fashion Futures took place in London on November 28, 2023. The event focused on three key themes: sustainability, technology and creativity.

- Technology: The event showcased some of the latest innovations and developments in fashion technology, such as 3D design, on-demand manufacturing, video shopping and digital mini trunks. The speakers and panelists explored how these technologies are enhancing the customer experience, improving efficiency and reducing waste in the fashion industry. They also discussed the challenges and opportunities of adopting and scaling these technologies, and how they are reshaping the fashion value chain.
