Fashion Tech: the vision of Pascal Morand

Interview - Pascal Morand, Executive President of the Federation de la Haute Couture et de la mode, member of the National Academy of technologies of France

Technologies have always been very important for fashion, like the invisible face of the fashion's iceberg. Now, with the digital revolution, the Fashion Tech is more visible. But the point is that Fashion Tech is not only linked with the digital technologies but with new technologies, for example, with research in chemicals. And you have still major concerns with logitics, supply chain etc.

Fashion is a key for modernity, and, in that way, has to contribute to preserve the planet, concludes Pascal Morand.
