Women Leading Visual Tech Live
Visual Tech Radically Transforming Fashion

LDV's Women Leading Visual Tech series: live event "Visual Tech Radically Transforming Fashion" - Dec 8, 2021

The global fashion industry is projected to be a $3T industry by 2030. While it has had its fair share of upheavals over the past two decades with the massive rise of e-commerce, the next decade will be even more revolutionary.

There is not a single part of fashion that will not be in massive transition over the next 10 years. From R&D to new textiles, personalized design & fit to digital-only clothing, it's an incredibly exciting time for visual technologies in the fashion industry.

Come join us for our Live Women Leading Visual Tech community event where we will hear from some of the top women who are at the forefront of fashion tech. Learn more about how they are deploying their deep, technical expertise to help make the future of fashion more sustainable, inclusive, personalized & digital.

When we say join us we seriously mean it - we want this to be an open conversation & connection opportunity for women & other underrepresented researchers, entrepreneurs & investors in the visual tech space. At LDV Capital, we believe in the power of people & community to improve our world. Some of the big questions we will look to tackle together in this event include:

How are the next merchandising trends & designs being informed by computer vision & machine learning?

Should brands be scrambling to recruit 3D & digital technical talent?

How are breakthroughs in nanomaterials shaping the textiles of the future?

What is the future of the fashion supply chain?

What are the best opportunities for robotics across manufacturing, packaging, shipping & returns?

Where are the greatest opportunities for generative algorithms (GANs) across fashion?

What will kill the e-comms grid? - Live shopping? Virtual stores? Avatar models?

Is there really a need for a virtual try-on?

How can computer vision do verification for vintage goods?

Should we be thinking more about our digital closets than our physical ones?

A year ago, we started our monthly Women Leading Visual Tech interview series to showcase the leading women whose work in visual tech is reshaping business & society. We highlight CEOs, Professors, Entrepreneurs, Scientists, Investors, & more. Our goal is to foster a community of women in visual tech by providing them with inspiration & support.

Previously, we touched on the topic of fashion & product customization in our interview with Zalando's Senior Data Scientist Nour Karessli. This is our second live event for WLVT & while we would love to welcome everyone who is interested, in order to make it a powerful, interactive event for our community, we have a limited number of spots available.
