In an industry filled with turbulence, rapid change and constant challenges, business leaders and creative talents come and go as quickly as reality shows. Yet for the upcoming 17th annual WWD CEO Summit, some of fashion and retailing’s most accomplished — and promising — executives will meet for two days of presentations, conversations and panel discussions.
Themed “The Transformers,” the summit will be held Oct. 28 and 29 at The Pierre in Manhattan. A group of 300 chief executive officers, presidents and company principals will exchange ideas, share best practices, forecast the future and network with their peers.
