SYDNEY, Australia — This week, BoF docks at Sydney Harbour for the Australian Financial Review’s Bespoke summit, to be held on May 16th at the city’s iconic Opera House, bringing together a distinguished panel of speakers from the luxury and fashion business to discuss global trends and innovation.
BoF’s editor-in-chief Imran Amed will deliver one of the event’s keynote speeches, joining a line-up that includes Mr Porter’s Jeremy Langmead, Sass & Bide designers Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke, and Lisa Chang, founder of Angle, a Shanghai-based communications agency.
“The central theme of Bespoke is creative collaboration because this is what makes the fashion, business and luxury worlds turn,” said AFR international fashion editor Marion Hume. “In 2013, it is all about the greatest creative minds working across disciplines sharing their power.”
True to that spirit, BoF is joining forces with Canadian top model, social media maven and television personality Coco Rocha to host an intimate talk on the Business of Modelling.
In anticipation of the session, Rocha, who is a board member of the Model Alliance, a network dedicated to ensuring ethical standards in the industry, sends a special message to the BoF community: “I’m so excited to discuss my experience in the industry over the last 10 years of my career and where I see the future of fashion and technology taking us in another 10 years. You get to be part of the conversation too, just send your questions via Twitter quoting #AskCoco. See you there!”
