Drapers Fashion Forum

Your customers are globally connected. Are you?

The Drapers Fashion Forum is the global debate on topics critical to the fashion retailing sector.

Power is now firmly in the hands of consumers.

The forum’s theme in 2015 – global fashion customers – reflected the board-level agenda of the biggest fashion brands and retailers to put customers at the heart of decision making. Delegates were given the knowledge to understand what impact the changing fashion shoppers will make on their business, job and future.

There's hardly any fashion business that does not profess their undying love for the customer. To deliver on that promise fashion brands and retailers need to connect a lot of dots. Through a series of talks and discussions, the 2015 forum developed an ever more sophisticated understanding of fashion shoppers and how brands can create a more powerful bond with them.
