FashionTech week #2 | NUMA with ESCP Europe, Hall Couture, Iconity & Jeanne Bloch invite you to meet major actors of future of fashion & its hybridation thanks to digital!

Digital printing, connected garments, smart textile: innovation opens infinite opportunities. Bridges between the startup and ready-to-wear ecosystem get stronger and stronger. International groups and startups start to ally to think together about the future of their markets. Paris, city of fashion & innovation, has a special role to play to allow the intersection between these two worlds.

It is with this conviction, that NUMA initiated with success in September 2014 the first FashionTech Week and will renew this experience during Paris Fashion Week in March 2015. For this second edition, events will be organized at NUMA and outsite: debate at ESCP Europe, closing party at La Paillasse. This event aims at helping cooperations emerge and give visibility to the many existing initiatives.
