The Business of Fashion: June 13

Fashionistas, rejoice! Even though Milan is 4,500 miles away, we have fashion experts right here in Milwaukee and we’re bringing six of them together for some chic conversation on the business of fashion. It’s more than handbags and hanger appeal – we’ll cover consumer trends, the latest in fashion business intelligence, new and luxury brands, distribution channels, and of course, the biggest question in the industry: what’s next?

Proudly Sponsored by Neroli Salon & Spa.
