How should fashion prepare for global instability?

The Issue

Endless terror attacks, full-fledged Middle East wars, financial shocks, Brexit, a bruising US election campaign, a tumbling Russia, China's slowdown, Brazil's meltdown, the rise of far-right nationalists in Europe. We live in polarising, tense and turbulent times where geopolitical conflicts, economic crises and social unrest are all contributing to a state of global instability and uncertainty, posing serious and far-reaching risks for an emotionally-driven and interconnected market like fashion and luxury. How should fashion and luxury companies prepare themselves for the unsettling reality of today's state of global instability?
