About Fashion Future
The market for Wearables is constantly growing and offers huge potential for the future. In the future, it's more likely to stumble across clothing, accessories or other Wearables, which are smart of some sort. Referring to a study by ABI Research, around 18 million smart Wearables will be sold by 2021 every year.

By combining the creativity and the technological innovations of studies and the industry, startups and more established companies, all requirements are met for the Fashiontech-Hub: space, creativity and maker.
