2023 was a breakout year for Generative AI and its potential to radically transform the fashion industry is an essential topic for all business and creative leaders. We are pleased to announce that we will return to The Times Center in New York City on March 22 to explore this topic and other disruptive technologies at the BoF Professional Summit – New Frontiers: AI, Digital Culture and Virtual Worlds.

Sign up now to join us in person at the Times Center, New York – or via the global livestream – to learn more about the latest innovations that will shape fashion and beauty in the year ahead.
