In the 18th annual New York Fashion conference, IAC celebrates pioneers from all corners of the industry. From those who create new materials to those who use traditional materials in innovative ways; designers who embrace revolutionary techniques to accomplish the previously unrealizable - or even unimaginable; those who fundamentally reimagine the commercial enterprises they lead, aligning their business goals not simply with the implacable demands of the bottom line but with the larger needs of the societies and environments in which they operate; those who incorporate, capture and document it all.
Receptions and book-signings complement lectures, panels, and conversations.
