Bale; The power of digital marketing for Australia from Jessica Yue, founder of Polaris Media Group whose clients include LVMH, Esteé Lauder, and L’Oréal among many others; A look inside Australia’s leading denim manufacturer Nobody Denim; An inspiring story from David Tring of Kontoor Brands (Wrangler & Lee) on his 20+ years in the industry, and how Mike Lelliott from Brand Strategy Application (BSA) uses Dyneema Denim to create Fashion that meets Function.
