“Success isn’t about the end result; it’s about what you learn along the way.”  –  Vera Wang

A new journey is about to begin. As the pace of our industry ebbs and flows, we recognize the opportunity for new voices, relatable stories and new perspectives.

At the 2019 Women in Textiles Summit we’re gathering some of the brightest leaders in the textiles industry to share, grow and create like never before.  We will explore creative approaches to current challenges and inspire forward thinking that happens when we ask what we want personally, professionally and for the industry as a whole.
