  1. Oo! Sounds like a powerful gathering. I will be there in spirit, residing in San Francisco. While discussing how consumers are driving the industry and welcoming Sustainability and CSR into their culture, it would be ideal to include the relevant topic of aging because, based on US 2010 Census numbers, the average age of women in this country is 38.5. This number is increasing as our population continues to age. If fashion retailers want to maintain profitability, they need to cast their net wider now and evolve from youth-focus advertising to include women of all ages. "Youthful knows no age." The wise retailers will embrace this trajectory. Giving women the fashion role models they crave and strengthening their bottom line. It's a win/win. Enjoy!
