Asia Fashion Summit 2014

Hussein Chalayan in conversation with Colin McDowell during last year’s Asia Fashion Summit


The Audi Fashion Festival opened last evening with the Prabal Gugung show but there will be no rest this week. We’re starting our day bright and early at the Asia Fashion Summit 2014. It’s the fifth edition and we’re looking forward to some of the big names coming to town for this annual conference. They include Franz Kraatz, Managing Director of Robinsons Singapore, Kelvin Lee, Business Development Director (Southeast Asia) of Taobao International Business, Harry Markl, Regional Managing Director of ZALORA Group, Steven Kolb, Chief Executive Officer of Council of Fashion Designers of America and especially Thomas Tait’s dialogue session with Colin McDowell.

The theme this year is “Asia’s Business Perspective”, focusing on Asia’s largest online shopping platforms, Zalora and Taobao. However, we cannot avoid the obvious Korean feature with speeches by Rick Yoo, Managing Director of Lotte Global Fashion Division and Jay Anne Jin, Executive Director (Business Development) of LF Corp because let’s face it, no one has been more successful in exporting their culture.

In between breaks, we’ll also try to clone ourselves so that we can check out BLUEPRINT. Join us if you’re in town!
