The conference looked at the threads that bind countries across continents as the colonialism of the past connects with present and future. There are countries that are linked by language – like Brazil with Portugal; or social and cultural connections that brought French taste to Lebanon.
Investment from new super-rich territories is flowing through these links as trade and consumer ties are re-established.
This map of influences has already drawn fresh and valuable connections which, in return, offer powerful opportunities for the international luxury and fashion industry. View the conference brochure here.
