For our fourth Gen A Roundtable, we are sitting together with Kazu Huggler, fashion designer and entrepreneur. How does one rise from "one of many" to a relevant fashion brand and which obstacles did she have to overcome as an entrepreneur in the fashion industry? What are the chances and challenges of the current global situation and how does she coordinate her showrooms, fashion shows, etc., in Switzerland and Japan? What are the differences between the fashion scenes in Europe and Asia?
Join our exclusive Roundtable and find out the answers to these and your own questions.
