Celebrating innovation in fashion & tech

The Fashion Futures Awards launched in May 2015 in partnership with the British Fashion Council in London, before heading to New York for the first US edition, with the support of W magazine.


Judged by an elite panel of international experts, the awards return to London this May. They will identify the brands that are pushing the boundaries through innovation and creatively using tech to make their businesses smarter, their production lifecycle leaner, their brands stronger, and their customer experiences more fulfilling.


This is an event for disruptors, visionaries and innovators pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in Fashion and Retail
