Spring 2019 Bloch VentureHub Entrepreneurial Workshop Series - The Challenges of the Fashion Industry

Tuesday, May 21 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am • Organized By Regnier Institute
4328 Madison Ave, Kansas City, MO 64111


This two-hour workshop will focus on the changing fashion industry and how supply chain and technology has driven to just in time delivery of fads and trends in the soft goods segment. We will look at the disrupters that have caused designers and suppliers to rethink strategic timelines in imaging, creating and delivering fashion in a way that will reduce excessive production costs and distribution aggregator’s challenges. We will identify retail trends and forecast where the future of fashion might be heading. As part of the interactive workshop, participants are led to take a role in a hands-on exercise to see if the group can come up with their own hypothesis and outcomes for the future of the fashion industry.

Delivered by Phillip Gonsher, Regnier Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation Assistant-Director of Mentor Programs.
