PI APPAREL BRINGS TOGETHER INDUSTRY LEADERS TO DISCUSS DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION IN THE APPAREL INDUSTRY
PI Apparel is returning for its 5th LA edition on February 28 at the Sheraton Universal Hotel. The two-day series will bring together leading creatives and innovators that have been taking the digital apparel industry by storm. Representatives from leading brands such as Nike, Carhartt, Skechers and Gap will be sharing their insights on hot topics including: Digitalisation, Virtual Reality and 3D Design. It is no question that digitalisation is changing the fashion industry. With this change comes the challenges of adaptability and sustainability on this ever-evolving landscape. As consumer behaviour evolves with the digital age, the retail industry finds itself developing alongside it or falling behind it. PI Apparel LA aims to address these key challenges, as well as highlighting the abundance of opportunities that technology presents. This year will have a focus on Digital Product Creation (DPC), Strategic Innovation and Disruptive Technology. This year's line-up will feature sessions led by fashion and technology trailblazers who will be sharing their expertise on topics such as utilising Augmented Reality to interact with consumers, achieving Digital Transformation through education and innovations in Digital Textile Printing. Notable features include: Christian L. Harris, Senior Technical Designer, 3D Global Development Standards, Nike, Jo Andrews, VP Global Apparel and Headwear, Skechers, Tiffany Radon, Manager of Technical Design, Carhartt Achieving Digital Transformation for any industry is a complex feat that involves mastering a number of different areas.
