Behind the scenes the preparations for the second edition of the Fashion Fusion challenge have already started. Nevertheless for all participants of the inaugural edition it remains exciting. There are many demanding but thrilling tasks that lie ahead: The search for inspiration, new partners and customers continues and the teams have to further develop their smart fashion concepts outside the lab.
