Adapting to different times…

Featuring a Select Panel of Speakers to a sold out crowd

Klaudia Zinaty-Capalbo and the members of the FGI Board brought the Fashion Industry together at the Shangri-la for ‘Fashion Unites’ on Tuesday September 21st. A select panel of speakers from all the major fashion organizations and industry leaders spoke on the challenges unique to our times, and generously shared their ideas for how to turn the changes into opportunities. Klaudia is a strong believer that we rise by lifting others, and gauging by the inspiration in the room and the interaction during the Q&A period that rounded off the discussions, it was more evident than ever.
