We're thrilled to share the sessions curated as part of XpoNorth 2021's fashion, craft & textiles panels.
Patrick Grant, the designer well known as a judge on The Great British Sewing Bee, is in conversation with Joan Johnston, Fashion, Craft and Textile Sector Specialist at XpoNorth. Patrick will share his passion for regional making, his relationship with the Highlands and Islands, the importance of regional skills development and his thoughts for the future on the textile fashion sector.
The past year has had a dramatic impact on the retail landscape. This engaging panel will explore the future of retail considering online vs bricks and mortar, how small retailers can compete in a competitive space, provenance and addressing the consumer experience.
Joan Johnston is XpoNorth's Fashion, Craft & Textiles Sector Specialist.
