“Home to a young, tech-savvy population, and one of Asia’s largest luxury markets, 2016 was the perfect time to hold the world’s first international luxury conference in Seoul”

SUZY MENKES, INTERNATIONAL VOGUE EDITOR

Against the backdrop of the fashion world’s latest hub and influencer, the 2016 edition of the conference brought together over 500 attendees from over 30 countries – a diverse and unique cross section of the luxury and fashion industry – for two days of talks about the future of luxury.

Suzy Menkes and top business and creative speakers discussed the topics that matter for the luxury industry: the power of social media for brands and designers; how technology continues to reshape the luxury industry; the size and reach of the Asian luxury retail market; why Korea is leading innovation in the global beauty market; new approaches to sustainability; how cosmetic surgery is competing for share of wallet; how luxury brands are using film to communicate with consumers; and much more.
