Drapers Next Generation: Technology drives the next generation of rising stars

Such was the calibre of this year’s 30 under 30 shortlist that we could have called it the 50 under 30, but that didn’t quite have the right ring to it.

What this shows, of course, is that our industry is filled with talented young people under the age of 30, keen to make that next leap in their careers.

As well as the traditional roles of buyers and merchandisers, Drapers Next Generation initiative has welcomed a lot more people in digital roles this year to the list, from content producers and multichannel editors, to digital designers and account executives, highlighting how technology continues to drive growth and innovation in fashion.

For 2013, Drapers Next Generation will nurture the careers of our 30 under 30 candidates even further by hosting a special dinner later this month so that all 30 can network and discuss their career plans. Then, on March 21, we will have our annual Next Generation Academy, where fashion’s future stars will listen to the wise words
of our leading lights in a one-day conference. For details on how to take part, visit the Drapers website, Facebookand Twitter pages - #DRNEXTGEN.

Until then, why not learn how one of fashion’s biggest names - John Lewis’ Peter Ruis - got to where he is today.
