The 2015 Lectra Education Congress brought together over 60 professors, department heads and directors from 33 international fashion schools and universities, around the theme of change and transformation in the fashion industry. The event was held on the banks of the Seine river at the French Fashion Institute (IFM) which is housed in Paris’ Cité de la Mode et du Design.

“This congress organised by Lectra and welcoming fashion schools and industry players helps highlight the importance of technology in fashion today. Our industry is both creative and traditional. Development techniques and information systems are constantly evolving and becoming increasingly sophisticated, thus allowing us to combine these aspects in an optimal way, while better managing the supply chain and the integral management of all processes, ” said Dominique Jacomet, Dean of IFM.
