Enjoy a chance to meet…
Eric Musgrave is an award-winning ex-editor-in-chief of Drapers, which is widely regarded as the bible of the fashion business. Since 1980, Eric has been observing, analysing and commenting on the UK fashion sector. Having been the founding editor of For Him Magazine (now FHM) in the mid-1980s, Eric was the creator of Drapers, the massively successful fashion business weekly, which was formed in 2002 by the merger of the weekly Drapers Record and the monthly Menswear. Eric has vast fashion industry knowledge and a huge network of contacts and this is a great opportunity to hear him speak about the future of retailing.
