Our resident chair Daryoush Haj-Najafi hosted both panels; the Comme des Garcons Homme Plus panel featured editor Dal Chodha, writer Hywel Davies, creative director Chris Sutton, and editor Adam Chinese Symbol. The group discussed the rise of luxury sportswear. In response to a celebrity question from designer Nasir Mazhar, the panel concluded 'fashion is based on shifts in sociology; we all grew up liking sportswear, so it's difficult to give up'.
Our Henrik Vibskov panel was made up of special guests art director Fred Butler, creative director Rob Phillips, senior professor David Kappo, and architect John-Michael O’Sullivan. Phillips commented 'He channels a very specific aesthetic. There's almost a lack of sensory experience in the shows'. The panel fielded a celebrity question from the creative director of Chanel, Amanda Harlech, who asked 'does sound become a part of the design process for Vibskov or other designers?'
