Home to a young, tech-savvy population, and one of Asia’s largest luxury markets, 2016 was the perfect time to hold the world’s first international luxury conference in Seoul

Suzy Menkes
International VOGUE Editor

  • Launched in 2015 in Florence, the Condé Nast International Luxury Conference is a unique event from the most exciting and influential multimedia company in the world. The conference draws on the collective influence of Condé Nast International’s publications, and the vision and knowledge of the world’s most renowned fashion journalist, Suzy Menkes, International Vogue Editor.

  • The 2016 conference focused on the future of luxury, and the role of Northeast Asia as a new hub for fashion.

    Against the backdrop of the fashion world’s latest hub and influencer, the 2016 edition of the conference brought together over 500 attendees from over 30 countries – a diverse and unique cross section of the luxury and fashion industry – for two days of talks about the future of luxury.

    Suzy Menkes and top business and creative speakers discussed the topics that matter for the luxury industry: the power of social media for brands and designers; how technology continues to reshape the luxury industry; the size and reach of the Asian luxury retail market; why Korea is leading innovation in the global beauty market; new approaches to sustainability; how cosmetic surgery is competing for share of wallet; how luxury brands are using film to communicate with consumers; and much more.

    “K-Power is the most dramatic force in current style. South Korea’s music, art and movie worlds are legendary. And Seoul’s luxury look has famously gone viral, as “Gangnam style.” ‘Future Luxury’ gathered the power people from Korea in technology, beauty, finance and fashion, while brand leaders from across the world talked about luxury’s newest and hottest hub.” - Suzy Menkes

A limited number of opportunities are available for sponsors and partners.
