For the first global Forces of Fashion conference—in which events were held across the U.S., the U.K., and Mexico—British Vogue partnered with Luxury Promise and Snapchat to stage five thought-provoking Fashion Vogue’s Forces panels about the future of the industry.
Among the vital topics discussed onstage at 180 The Strand, which had been decorated by Kanku Floristry for the occasion: what a greener model for the fashion world might look like, with contributions from Luxury Promise’s CEO Sabrina Sadiq and Mother of Pearl’s founder Amy Powney; how to foster greater diversity within the beauty landscape, with contributions by Charlotte Tilbury and Sabrina Dhowre Elba; Vogue’s Kate Phelan and photographer Nadine Ijewere on creating timeless images; and the future of runway presentations, led by Valentino’s inimitable Pierpaolo Piccioli.
Adding a touch of popstar magic to the day? Dua Lipa, who joined British Vogue editor-in-chief and European editorial director Edward Enninful on stage for a chat about her life in fashion. Step inside the event, below.
