Farfetch has revealed the speaker line-up for its FarfetchOS fashion and technology innovation summit, which takes place in London next month.
Music artist, entrepreneur and philanthropist Will.i.am will be participating in a panel debate on how technology is shaping the future of fashion alongside Miroslava Duma, digital innovator and founder of Buro 24/7, AllSaints CEO William Kim and Google head of fashion Maria McClay.
Farfetch founder José Neves and newly appointed non-executive co-chair Dame Natalie Massenet will take part in a fireside chat discussing technology platforms and luxury fashion, while Deliveroo co-founder and CEO William Shu will sit on a panel discussing how digital is eating the world alongside senior names from L2, DST Global and Spotify.
The event, which takes place at The Design Museum in Kensington on 12 April, is invitation-only and global consultancy Bain & Company is the official research partner. Neves will also use the platform to reveal more about Farfetch’s Store of the Future concept, which is being tested at London boutique Browns, which Farfetch acquired in 2015.
“We believe that the future of luxury fashion will involve the physical store and will be augmented by digital platforms, making a variety of unique, customer-focused experiences possible,” Neves said.
