The Future of Fashion by Sportswear International
The Future of Fashion by Sportswear International

16 May. 2012


The only thing that the future guarantees is change.
An increased complexity and interactivity in the daily business and steadily changing market conditions. Ever evolving consumer habits. The changing face of retail. The shelf life of trends upended. Rising prices. Partnerships and splits. That whole "save the world"/go green thing …

On July 3, 2012, one day before Bread & Butter, decision makers from production, brands and retail are going to gather at the Ellington Hotel in Berlin at 10:00 am to discuss the future challenges for the denim and fashion sector and how to deal with these successfully. 
Participants of The Sportswear International Summit - The Future of Fashion include:

Oliver Bogatu - Private Sale / Brands4Friends, Detlef Braun - Messe Frankfurt, Saskia Bruder - Vizona, Emin Cezairli – Mavi, Stefan Crämer - Crämer & Co, Kristin Deutelmoser - Messe Düsseldorf, Constanze Fuchs - Messe München, Deidre Hackman - DSHG2, Sebastian Klinder - MUNICH FABRICSTART, Marco Lanowy - Alberto, Romina     Lemmert - Tomorrow Focus Media, Marc Lohausen -, Serdar Mazmanoglu - Mavi, Karl-Heinz Müller - BREAD & BUTTER, Jürgen Müller - Hartmann Consulting, Barbara Portaluri - Evolute Consulting, Stefan Puriss -, Christof Schönenberger - Schönenberger Modehaus, Jan Schoper - Levi´s, Tobias Schröder - Khujo, Andrea Schütz - Tutto Fashion and Accessorires, Cathrina Schütz - Tutto Fashion and Accessorires, Dietmar Senft - Crämer & Co, Stefan Sommer - Bravado, Torsten Widarzik - Levi´s, Donna Zazulak - Zazulak Marketing

The major theme will be THE FUTURE OF FASHION and topics such as:
... consumer shopping
will online shopping be the death of brick-and-mortar establishments or will it revitalize them?
... multibrand retail
how much multibrand retailers evolve their assortments, service and store design to ensure success?
... fashion trends
what will be the most influential looks, styles, colors and inspirations to hit fashion in the months and years ahead?
... prices
3 or 300 euro - what is a pair of jeans actually worth and how much of that is understood by the customer?
... partnerships
how will retail and industry continue to find synergies and who will be the key players in these deals?
... green fashion
the green, eco and ethical movements seem to have lost some steam. Do morality and money still go together?

Audience interaction, Q&A sessions and informal breaks/networking sessions will allow attendees to personally interact and to share ideas and insights with a live audience.

These topics will be highlighted by:
- Prof. Dr. Marc Drüner - CEO. trommsdorff + drüner - innovation + marketing consultants
