LONDON Vogue Italia editor Franca Sozzani will be a keynote speaker at Decoded Fashion Milan, a forum that will focus on the intersection between digital technologies and the fashion industry.

Other speakers include executives from Dolce and Gabbana, Salvatore Ferragamo, Ermenegildo Zegna, Diesel, Yoox.com, Farfetch.com and Wired Italia. Organizers said that Sozzani will speak about how the worlds of fashion and technology are intersecting.


There is also a Fashion Pitch competition, supported by Wired magazine and aimed at unearthing new ideas at the overlap of technology and fashion.


As reported in May, e-Pitti, the Florence-based trade show organizer’s portal, has teamed up with the New York-based Tecnamedia to organize the event. It will take place on Oct. 16 at show space La Pelota in Milan’s Brera district.
