Desiring to advance the traditional fashion landscape towards true sustainability, digital transformation has been a hot topic in the fashion industry.
The prerequisite to adopting any cutting-edge innovation is mental preparedness. This is especially vital for the fashion industry, which have been operating under the same model throughout the decades. Now that the pandemic has made digital transformation a necessity for survival, fashion professionals must first adopt a digital mindset to navigate this new digital landscape.
This webinar will first touch on what it means to have a digital mindset. For an industry as old as fashion, just learning the new isn’t enough, we have to unlearn the old. We will also discuss why having a digital mindset is important for now and future. The course will then introduce the topic of digital transformation, letting you know what it is, it’s benefits and limitations, the different types of digital in fashion, and where to start. Lastly, we will debunk some of the myths and misconceptions of fashtech. The course will end with a feasible and practical solution in the market, which can bring virtuality to fashion.
