Research shows that Millennials are more interested in unique experiences than they are in materialistic items.  This massive generation has forced brands and retailers to rethink how their apparel enhances consumer's user experience, changes it or personalizes it.  This seminar will look at some of the unique fabric and garment technologies that are allowing users to experience the world as they choose, in a manner customized to their needs.  Can technology in garments truly deliver on the" personalization" promise?

Often, trends come and go in under six weeks. But, for fashion manufacturing, which traditionally has lead times of 3 – 6 months, jumping on the fad of the moment can lead to leftover inventory and profit loss. But, when companies use tech to aggregate trends data over multiple retailers and manufacturers, they can begin to predict trends. What’s more, using technology to increase efficiency can reduce production and shipping lead-times to drive products that are on trend in as few as three weeks.  During a panel discussion, experts that are integral to the supply chain ecosystem will discuss how they have been able to produce, ship and receive trend-right product in a short window while maintaining profitability.

How do we kick-off circular supply chains? By developing robust collection systems, the ability to sort materials according to the needs of downstream processing and turning used garments and materials into new ones. These steps will make or break functioning circular supply chains that will allow for reductions in textile waste and the need for new raw materials.
