Dries Van Notes, McCartney to join Vogue’s first-ever conference

Forces of Fashion is the first event of its kind: For one day only in New York City, a series of intimate and informative dialogues between some of the most talented designers of today and the editors of Vogue.

“These will be no holds barred and nothing is off the table conversations; everything about what it means to be designing and working in 2017 is, and will be, up for discussion. You’ve worn and loved what these designers do – now’s your chance meet them, up close and personal” declares Vogue on the magazine’s first-ever conference. Scheduled for October 12 Forces of Fashion celebrates the magazine’s 125th anniversary with André Leon Talley and US Vogue’s queen herself. 

“When it came to our 125th anniversary, designers had to be part of the celebration; who they are, and what they do, is so much part of Vogue. Yet we wanted to do something that is different, and which speaks to the world today; the collective desire for experience and connection” says Vogue Editor in Chief Anna Wintour.

“Forces of Fashion will bring together some of our favorite names, and allow them the opportunity to speak in a way they’ve never done before; live and direct with Vogue’s editors on a day that we believe will be as informative as it is intimate. You’ll need to be there to really experience it!”

The current lineup features 10 editor-designer talks: Fashion Director Tonne Goodman and Stella McCartney on the future of ethical fashion, International Editor at Large Hamish Bowles and Dries Van Noten on the power of independent design, and more. Tickets for the event in New York City are available and priced at $3,000, which includes breakfast, lunch, cocktails, and full access to the conference schedule.
