Oftentimes what hits the runway is rarely reality. In this "state of the industry" discussion, an elite panel of industry insiders will go beyond the New York Fashion Week catwalks and dish on the top fashion and beauty trends for 2018. In addition to the trends report, forecasting for the future will be addressed, as well as dialogue on contemporary issues impacting the business (i.e. the plus size movement, fast fashion, ethical fashion, diversity amongst brands, decline of retail, etc.).
