Since we launched the Drapers Next Generation concept early in 2010, it has taken on a life of its own.
Since we launched the Drapers Next Generation concept early in 2010, it has taken on a life of its own. We have expanded the size of both the event, doubling the number of delegates, and this supplement to make sure we celebrate even more of the young talent that the fashion industry continues to attract.
Over 44 pages, Drapers has hunted down the names you need to know as future leaders of the industry, starting with our 30 under 30 on p3.
It’s not only designers grabbing the spotlight either - there are plenty of buyers, merchandisers, retailers and accountants making their mark on the sector.
These young talents now need to be nurtured and coached through to the next stages of their careers. These are the very people that will help us through the economic recovery and back into growth, with their bank of innovative new ideas that will shape the future of fashion retailing.
On March 31, we welcome the second intake of Next Generation stars to our exclusive seminar. See p36 for details on how to be a part of our free one-day seminar.
