This year’s annual Forces of Fashion summit, occurring on July 7 and 8, already has a star-studded lineup of speakers including designers Marc Jacobs and John Galliano, make-up artist Pat McGrath, and stylist Zerina Akers. As of today, even more A-list speakers have been added to the lineup – and Vogue invites you to get in on the fun and to register for tickets.
Award-winning, record-breaking artist Billie Eilish will be joining Gucci’s visionary creative director Alessandro Michele for a candid conversation around fashion, music, and more. Michele has dressed Eilish on many occasions – including for the Grammys this year, sparkly headpiece and all. Eilish is also gearing up for her highly-anticipated sophomore album, Happier Than Ever, releasing in July. As two prominent figures who shape their respective industries, it will be a conversation not to be missed.
Meanwhile, for Forces of Fashion VIP ticket holders only: Andrew Bolton, the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute’s Curator in Charge, will also host a special conversation around his upcoming exhibit, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, which opens at the Anna Wintour Costume Center on September 18. He will be joined by designers Vera Wang and Prabal Gurung for a conversation on American fashion, identity, culture, and politics.
More details and tickets are available on the Forces of Fashion website, and additional speakers will also be announced very soon – stay tuned.
