Kilpatrick sponsors the fifth edition of the Fashion Innovation Award

The Fashion Innovation Award is a call to Innovation aimed at existing companies and start-ups who have a technology or product which has the potential to widely disrupt the world of fashion.

The best start-ups will have the chance to meet face-to-face with leading investors, world-class fashion & retail brands as well as gain visibility and a development package from Loomish and its partners worth thousands of Euros. Simply put, it will take you to the next level.

The Fashion Innovation Award is open to all startups and young companies involved in studying and designing intelligent, digital solutions for the fashion and retail industries. The best ones will be chosen by an international-level jury of experts and top managers from the fashion & retail world as well as investors and academics. They will be looking for those solutions which offer the most disruptive, innovative business opportunities and which are ready to scale internationally.


Kilpatrick decided to sponsor the Fashion Innovation Award firmly convinced it is both a challenge and an opportunity. For every startup with a fantastic idea there is a brand crying out for a solution. But startups need support to make their offer viable. If revolutions in fashion include e-Commerce & omnichannel evolutions, new millennial expert customers, new technologies, processes and products, new skills, expertise and, the right resources are must-have assets.

Based on their long-standing background in the Executive Search market, Kilpatrick chose to turn their attention to the dynamic world of start-ups who have a technology or product with a highly disruptive potential in the fashion world with a mind to sustaining their growth by hiring talented professionals driven by an innovation-oriented thrust, in line with the company’s values and vision.

Furthermore, in the framework of the “Innovation Meets Fashion” session of the Fashion Innovation Week, Kilpatrick will promote a round table hosting a few key players of the fashion industry to discuss the importance of human resources and their ability to adapt to an ever-changing world, of modern skills the current challenge requires as well as the importance of flair for innovation.
