“This year, as we have for the past 20, Initiatives in Art and Culture is honored to welcome a distinguished roster of speakers to explore different, temporally relevant themes in our annual Fashion + Design Conference,” said Lisa Koenigsberg, president of IAC. “As Vortex: Paradox, Promise, and Possibility attests, we continue to celebrate important designers and other major industry figures. We also increasingly address issues such as sustainability, diversity and inclusion, the digital landscape and social media, how the industry can best connect with consumers, and the ever-shifting equilibrium between online and brick-and-mortar retail. Our consideration also extends to jewelry and accessories. We are also honored to engage with major professional associations that are devoted to the consideration of all things fashion.”
