Thomai Sedari review of the 2nd International In Pursuit of Luxury Conference in New York

The Second International ‘In Pursuit of Luxury’ conference; a collaborative project between The School of Creative Arts at the University of Hertfordshire, Brooklyn College of the City University of New York and LIM took place at LIM College in New York on May 6, 2016 and presented an ambitious premise: “to provide [the] opportunity for academia and industry to come together to discuss issues that [have] a key impact on the global luxury brand market.” Structured as an interdisciplinary forum of experts whose work aims at expanding our understanding of the context of luxury, the conference was dotted with panels of business professionals
whose presence interrupted the spindrift of academic writing with a dose of realism and a pragmatic snapshot of the contemporary luxury consumer.
