Head of fashion, luxury and retail for Facebook Tracy Yaverbaun spoke about the opportunities for fashion across social media and there was also an insightful Q&A session with the CEO of Austin Reed Nick Hollingworth.

Hollingworth spoke about the changes and opportunities within the retail sector having worked across menswear and womenswear for retailers such as C&A and Arcadia before heading up Austin Reed for almost ten years.

Raeburn shared his experiences in starting out experimenting with recycled military materials to his re-made in Britain collections being sold by top luxury retailers worldwide. He also shared his artistic experiences with a journey through his creative processes exploring design, art and film.
