today Nov 8, 2019
“The future of fashion: commitment and differentiation” is the theme of Vogue Fashion Festival’s fourth consecutive edition in Paris. The event for industry insiders and fashion enthusiasts will bring together a strong line-up of speakers on 15-16 November at the Potocki hotel in Paris.
The two-day event will host a series of talks and masterclasses to explore the sector’s most pressing issues, after the positive response to its previous editions in Paris, which featured the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Virgil Abloh and Maria Grazia Chiuri. This time around, the conference will centre on two main concepts: environmental engagement and societal engagement, including diversity and gender equality as well as the issue of brand differentiation in a highly saturated market.
To explore these challenges, the event has invited a range of experts an industry veterans such as Balenciaga CEO Cédric Charbit; Nicolas Houzé, managing director of Galeries Lafayette and BHV Marais; John Boumphrey, vice president of Amazon Fashion Europe; Francesca Belletini, president of Yves Saint Laurent; Béatrice Lazat, HR director at Kering; Nicolas Blanc, global account manager of Linkedin France; Bastien Daguzan, CEO of Paco Rabanne; and Morgane Sézalory, founder of Sézane.
Meanwhile, Victoria Beckham will look back on her career, while Dior menswear artistic director Kim Jones is set to explore how men’s fashion has evolved over the years. Julien Dossena, artistic director of Paco Rabanne; Natacha Ramsay-Levi, artistic director of Chloé; Victoire de Castellone, artistic director of Dior Joaillerie; and Nadja Swarovski of Swarovski are also included in the list of speakers. Additionally, Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Vogue France and Edward Enninful, editor-in-chief of British Vogue will deliver industry insights alongside model Liya Kebede and casting director Piergiorgio Del Moro.
