The conference Digital Fashion Futures explores the future of digital fashion
initiatives, bringing together a multitude of online fashion platforms and innovative perspectives from the cultural heritage industry.

On the first day, the conference examines ways in which digital content can be worked into a valuable experience for its consumers as well as the evolving role of digital content in business models for fashion. Participants are encouraged to evaluate their own role in the future landscape of fashion.

On the second day, various workshops and debates allow participants to delve deeper into the ideas presented on the first day. Use cases, challenges, best practices and how-to’s offer in-depth insights and practical detail for anyone who wants to be part of the future of fashion online. Topics that will be covered are intellectual property in a digital environment, digital skills required in tomorrow’s fashion world, how to contribute content to Europeana Fashion, and more.

The conference is complemented by a range of off-programme social activities to
let participants connect with each other as well as explore the Belgian fashion and heritage scene. These activities take place on 24, 25 and 26 February. Participants can sign up for these events independently from the conference.
