Last week, on June 6th 2019, London College of Fashion, UAL and Education4Fashion-Tech organised and hosted the Footwear and Wearable Tech Symposium, serving as our first multiplier event to disseminate the projects results to a wide network of stakeholders in the field of fashion-tech. 

The one-day seminar focused on the effects of digital technologies on education, business models and new design practices for the fashion, textile and footwear industries. The project was presented by Jose Teunissen, accompanied by a presentation by our advisory board member Pauline Van Dongen.
