“Just being in a room with some of the people – CEO’s of ecommerce businesses – some of the most influential people in fashion, being able to talk to them is huge. The advice we’ve got at Decoded fashion has enabled us to get to the next level. It’s about understanding what retailers and fashion brands want and it’s the best place to meet.” Joel Freeman, Co-founder & CEO, Grabble


“We want to be amongst the top fashion brands in the world, so we had to be at the Decoded Fashion Summit.
