FASHINNOVATION connects entrepreneurs and innovators to create revolutionary change in the fashion industry by ways of technology. In between the bi-annual conference that gathers the most innovative forward thinking designers and brands with leaders in the technology industry, FASHINNOVATION has launched the Fashion Is to Love talk series.

The panel discussions aim to build a diverse community of like-minded individuals in intersecting industries, keeping everyone abreast the latest in trends/ innovations and to share inspiration with motivational stories of entrepreneurs who made it happen. 

On August 6th, 2019 the Conscious Fashion Campaign, supported by the United Nations Office for Partnerships, will co-host FASHION Is Sustainability & the Arts with welcome remarks by Ann Rosenberg – SAP & Global Head, SAP Next-Gen. The discussion will be moderated by Kerry Bannigan – Founder, Conscious Fashion Campaign with panelists Nina Farran – Founder, FashionKind, Jason Naylor – Artist + Creative Director and Jordana Guimaraes – Co-Founder, FASHINNOVATION.

Kerry Bannigan, Founder, Conscious Fashion Campaign shares: “FASHINNOVATION intermixes the industry disruptors with decision makers in entrepreneurship, technology, fashion and entertainment. The engagement of these lifestyle tiers to educate about impact in our work are essential to spark the entrepreneurial mindset and drive the change that the Conscious Fashion Campaign advocates for.”

The conversation will explore art’s role in movements for change, how human creative skill and imagination can produce works that create strong emotional connections to empower sustainable fashion and how art as a powerful medium can express global issues to various demographics. 

“It was amazing to see how much sustainability plays a role when it comes to art and technologies towards the fashion industry. We are most definitely headed in the right direction” says Jordana Guimaraes, Co-Founder, FASHINNOVATION.
