What is the state of Czech fashion and textile industry? Who are the greatest players; which international brands manufacture their goods here and what are Czech fashion’s and textile’s prospects? Which international trends and business strategies work on a local fashion market too and what challenges do young Czech brands aiming for international markets need to prepare for? What is the ever growing impact of digitalisation and the growth of Eastern and Southern markets on the standing of international fashion? These are the topics professionals from the worlds of business, design, and media are going to address at the Business Forward Forum conference.
