On October 29th, over 200 Fashion Business students and 30 Fashion Business faculty members participated in the INSIGHTS: Fashion Business to 2030 conference at Seneca College. A joint initiative between Humber, George Brown and Seneca colleges, INSIGHTS was the first tri-college fashion conference of its kind.
Highlights from the event included speakers Carrie Kirkman (Kirkman Consulting, Global Brands Group, and Sears), Claire Santamaria (VP Yorkdale) and a panel discussion with four fashion-tech entrepreneurs in Toronto.
The conference theme, Fashion Business to 2030 covered many topics including The Future of Fashion Wholesale, Fashion Tech in the 2020s and The Future of Fashion Retail. The event provided students and faculty a forum to hear from and ask questions to top leaders in the Canadian Fashion sector. After a successful launch in 2019, plans are underway to make INSIGHTS a yearly event with hosting duties rotated between the three colleges.
