Experts highlight importance of sustainable fashion brands and destination weddings at industry-leading forum

The second edition of the much-anticipated webinar – the International Fashion Innovation Conclave – was successfully held with over 300 attendees participating from different parts of the globe.

International Fashion Innovation Conclave, the fashion and lifestyle Innovation series, explore new and exciting innovations and entrepreneurial endeavours that are transforming the industry ecosystem especially beyond 2020 – including designers, e-commerce, fashion tech, textiles, education, jewellery and other lifestyle ventures. US-based international innovation platform, Mavericks365, hosted the event.

The event brought together several leading industry-experts, fashionistas, seasoned event managers and fashion entrepreneurs who gave deep insights into the latest trends, innovations and issues affecting the industry, as well as the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the sector.

The first session, a Masterclass on Building Sustainable Fashion Brands, highlighted the increasing global focus on sustainability and why brands no longer have the luxury of ignoring sustainable practices. Speakers reiterated the importance of knowing how a brand fits into the space of sustainability and how the brand offering is imperative to creating a coherent ideology, among others.

The session was followed by a special feature on destination weddings, ‘The Future of the Wedding Business’. Here, experts stressed the significant increase in demands for destination-related experiences to compensate for the restrictions on numbers imposed by various countries due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Maverick365 founder Vineet Nambiar, the fashion and event management industry, like every other sector, is experiencing lots of challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

That is why we believe there is a need for us to start looking at more innovations that could help sustain the industry at this period and even beyond.

He said that the International Fashion Innovation Conclave has crystallized to become one of the most important forums in the industry, adding that they are happy with the impact and the feedback from the sector.
