Where else but Los Angeles would one expect to seamlessly blend fashion and technology? The city has earned its place as one of the country’s most innovative hubs not only for entertainment, but also for luxury—making it the perfect venue for the fourth annual Fashion Tech Forum. Hosted by Amazon Fashion’s Kate Dimmock and style expert Joe Zee, the intimate conference introduced a star-studded lineup, including designer Virgil Abloh of Off-White, musician will.i.am and Good American’s Emma Grede. It was the best of both worlds, and there was no shortage of powerful conversation to push the boundaries of those industries. Here, the guests who are changing the future of retail.
