Advanced Textiles & Market Opportunities
In this session panellists will discuss the development of advanced textiles, technologies and other fibre-based innovations with relation to their own experiences and the wider industry’s. As consumers continue to demand more from their clothing, we consider the plausibility for multi-functional apparel innovations to be introduced to the mainstream markets and whether garment manufacturers face any challenges in doing so. Finally, we will hone in on the panellists’ own ambitions within this rapidly evolving, tech-forward marketplace and how they anticipate the sector to change over the coming years.
