Learn from The Mills Fabrica

Imagining the Future of TechStyle

Welcome to The Mills Fabrica’s “Imagining the future of techstyle” IoL Summit segment.


The day’s programme would be broken down into 3 key parts:

  1. Past to present: from textile to techstyle Programme will start by examining how the fashion/ textile industry has changed and been gradually disrupted by technology and what we term as the emergence of the field of “techstyle”. This will include a presentation on an overview into “techstyle” as a new industry as well as to hear from various leading techstyle startups on “what does it mean to be a techstyle entrepreneur/ startup”.
  2. Techstyle today: the future is already here The second segment would then focus on the latest innovations that we see in techstyle today and will feature various large corporate industry partners working in the fashion/ textile industry who will showcase and share on latest innovations in their field that are redefining the techstyle industry.
  3. Imagining the future: what’s next for tech The final segment will look towards the future where our partners would share both about future techstyle trends and how techstyle is shaping our societies and the world such as in sustainability.
