The event is not just about sparking a conversation around the world of fashion and its future, it’s also about sharing skills and insights into the special craft through a collection of masterclasses and workshops led by fashion leaders. The most exciting course will be given by Abdullah Abo Milhim, a professor at the Italian design school Istitutio Marangoni, who will place a lens on the business side of fashion and lead a class that will focus on innovation trends and merchandising.

Bringing more fashion education to the forefront will be Accademia Costume & Moda, a renowned Italian fashion school that will offer masterclasses in everything from visual merchandising to brand development. Fun surprises are also part of the Fashion Futures event with fashion pop-up shops as well as a Swap Shop concept opening to the public. With such an eclectic collection of activities and attendees, the event is a great way to place a big, celebratory lens on the fashion world at large.
