Modernizing the Fashion Ecosystem in Russia: Plan for the Economic Miracle of 2035

02 Jun , 14:30–15:30
Creative Business Forum
Strategic Session
Pavilion G, Innosocium LAB
In partnership with Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation

The modern fashion industry is undergoing a rapid transformation. Thanks to the integration of new technologies, Russian fashion and light industry has gained a competitive advantage for the first time since the end of the 19th century. Russian businessmen have greater chances of getting into the fashion market of the future, like Italy, where fashion is well-developed, but tech has just begun. Is the fashion industry of the green post-capitalist era hybrid, circular, multicultural, and ethical? Have major retail outlets and factories already begun rebooting as technology hubs? What components of the ecosystem should acceleration programmes target? How can we replace chains that have been knocked out? What kind of potential do Russian brands have on international markets?
