LOOK FORWARD, Fashioning the Future of Fashion One Innovation At A Time

This year LOOK FORWARD continues to bring people, who are not used to rubbing shoulders, together, creating a hybrid wellspring of opportunity.

We are excited to announce that this year we have been invited to be part in LOOK FORWARD Fashion Tech Festival. Taking place between 28th June and 2nd July 2nd, 2017, the open to all free event brings the merger of fashion and technology to the city of lights, Paris.

Organised by showroomprive.com, LOOK FORWARD is a portal into the future of fashion and retail. Celebrating the emergence of innovations in several economic fields such as retail, health, beauty or textile, it first launched in June 2015 as an incubator for 10 startups. This year LOOK FORWARD, will be presenting 25 creations over 5 days.

Nourishing and feeding attendees a diet of fashion, beauty and retail, the event will be taking place at the capital fashion centre, la Gaite Lyrique.
