. MATERIALS MATTER
DESIGN + INNOVATION + EDUCATION = DESIGNING THE FUTURE
The CFDA’s Seventh Annual Fashion Education Summit brings together academic leadership from participating schools – a community of more than twenty prestigious American fashion design programs –alongside CFDA program participants, members and industry.
This year’s conversation centers on Materials Matter, from test tube ideas to emerging industry innovations. Presenting guests include Parley for the Oceans, Fjord, Future Tech Lab, and The Sustainable Angle.
While topics evolve each year, our intention remains the same: to foster unity between education and industry, and activate meaningful dialogue around relevant issues. Thank you for being an essential voice within our CFDA family.
