Profit never goes out of fashion, and the British fashion industry generated £26 billion to the UK’s economy last year, supporting directly or indirectly almost 800,000 jobs. The industry is working hard to foster creativity through the innovative use of digital technologies.
They're helping educate the designers of the future, achieve better and faster ways to get the latest designs in the shops, and find new ways to engage consumers and keep them buying both in-store and online.
The GREAT Festival brings all that fashionable talent together to develop long-term strategies in a business that’s always all about now!
Fashion is big business where styles change in weeks not months. This is a sector which lives and breathes the concept of commercial creativity: transforming imagination and craft into growth.
Established names, boutique brands, new and famous retailers, manufacturers, makers, independent creative, distributors - the GREAT Festival provides a unique snapshot of the State of Fashion in 2015.
Focusing on actionable insights, key global and local industry leaders and experts will demonstrate how to design beautiful things and sell them.
Consumers love to engage with their favourite fashions and digital technology allows them to enter new tribes, express their desire for novelty, and share their passion for fashion. We look at how consumers can become immersed in their favourite brands.
Fashion moves fast because supply-chains are well organized and integrated within global businesses. Innovative new ways of getting the latest styles from the catwalks to the hangers, rails and shelves of flagship stores, or to consumers’ doorsteps via online portals, depend on cutting edge technology. The latest solutions are all here.
To demonstrate support for this significant UK Government initiative and to support our growth objectives in UK SME/MME space, HSBC have chosen to be a Principal Partner of the GREAT Festival of Creativity.
