 IAC ANNOUNCES 19TH FASHION + DESIGN - NOVEMBER 10 & 11, 2017  Fashion + Design Conference, entitled “White: Palette, Prism, Possibility,” taking place November 10 & 11, 2017. The event also will feature a reception at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, November 10, at the Shinola Flagship in Tribeca (177 Franklin St.) with remarks by Shinola President Jacques Panis.

“A central visual and cultural communicator, color is an incredibly important element in creative industries, both from an aesthetic standpoint and when we examine the associated deeper meanings,” said Lisa Koenigsberg, Founder, IAC. “In this conference, the color white is examined as a powerful statement of purity and tradition, and as a catalyst for change—a color of origins, of new beginnings, and of hope. We believe this hope and the notion of new beginnings is manifest through design and is a driving force throughout the world.”

The conference will feature presentations on design innovation, color theory, advancements in materials technology, fashion history, fashion photography, diversity on the runway and broadened conceptions of beauty, updates on the jewelry industry, an extensive review of the state of the bridal industry, business advice, strategies, and solutions from leading authorities and industry experts.
