Continuing on its course as an industry trailblazer, the is currently counting down to its first annual fashion gathering. In typical BoF style, this is not your traditional industry-type conference, rather a forum for big thinkers to share their experiences, challenge conventional wisdoms and explore new opportunities.

In three weeks time, attendees will head to Oxfordshire’s Soho Farmhouse to take part in this very first VOICES event, which is an extension of BoF’s online fashion community forum and its local VOICES program, which hosts more intimate gatherings across the globe.

Among the list of venerable speakers at this now sold-out event are chief digital officer of LVMH Ian Rogers, who will join BoF’s Imran Amed in conversation about what fashion can learn from Silicon Valley, DeRay Mckesson, Black Lives Matter activist and educator, who will discuss race, inequality and privilege with broadcaster June Sarpong and Professor Anthony Heath of the University of Oxford, and Farfetch chief executive officer José Neves, who with Gucci chief executive Marco Bizarri will discuss disruption in a rapidly changing marketplace.

BoF VOICES will take place from 1st to 3rd December, 2016.
