Event Highlights:

Key Note Speaker: Karen Walker

Karen Walker's eccentrically elegant style has established a stellar international following for her ready-to-wear, eyewear, jewellery, bags and fragrance.Karen's signature energy and optimism define the label. Her designs cleverly play with cultural subtext, juxtaposing luxe and street, masculine and feminine, folk and utility, creating pieces that are both directional and wearable: Maggie Gyllenhaal, Adele, Lorde, Priyanka Chopra, Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga count themselves amongst the formidable roster of celebrity fans.

Karen's influence has seen her consistently ranked for the past seven years in The Business of Fashion's powerhouse BoF 500, reflecting her position as a global industry figure shaping the future.

Karen is going to speak on managing and how to cope with change.
