it’s up to us!
In March of 2021, we were invited to give a masterclass on the Future of Fashion at Thomas More University in Belgium. Our wonderful and brilliant Director of Impact and Business Strategies, Joana Lacerda, took the stage and taught more than sixty students about the future of the fashion industry.
Throughout these teaching hours, we taught these young and future Media and Entertainment Business professionals what fashion tech is and how it can revolutionize the fashion industry. However, even though we have the technology and features to change the industry, our masterclass focused on something much more important than that – the power of people.
We believe that the future of fashion is not only written by technology, but also by people. We humans are the real engine of change. However, to change the future, we have to learn and grow from the past. Listening to the wisest, reading to avoid mistakes: only afterwards can we begin the journey to the future.
For us, this is disruptiveness; it is not ending everything that was done previously, but innovating, evolving, and seeking to be more and better. And that represents nothing more and nothing less than human evolution. Therefore, the future of the fashion industry is human. It’s complex. It’s innovative. But this is all thanks to the potential of the human being in the digital age combined with the incredible opportunities of technology.
However, some technologies are ready to steal the spotlight in the future of the fashion industry. Some of these technologies are wearable displays, new materials and robotics, 3D design, and gaming and e-sports, among many other changes. Whether in production, communication, function, or mission, the concept of fashion is changing every second.
Fashion will be more than just fashion. In fact, we should not look at fashion just as an industry, but also as a driver of culture and innovation. This is just the first chapter of the book on the fashion industry revolution, take our word for it.
