Istanbul Fashion Conference focuses on global developments
Oct '15
The Istanbul Fashion Conference will highlight positive global developments in the fashion industry under the theme 'Making it better'.

“Istanbul is a good location to see directly, a number of positive developments in the global fashion industry,” a press release from the International Apparel Federation (IAF) informed.

The 'Emerging brands' session on October 14 covers supply chain, CSR and sustainability, raw materials and marketing and branding.

“In the Emerging Brands session, upcoming successful Turkish brands will share their success stories with the apparel world,” IAF said.

“Their development from manufacturer to brand to retailer to cross border success, shows how in emerging economies such as Turkey, the apparel industry continues to evolve and create value addition,” it added.

Brands such as Kigili, Lia Lea, Les Benjamins and 2Wins will demonstrate how it is done in practice.

In the 'Young Designer' session, Dominique Jacomet, the director of the Institut Francais de la Mode and Wendy Malem, director of the Centre for Fashion Enterprise, will present the unique 'Worth' project.

The project has spawned a number of great new and innovative products and that has brought together the designers with manufacturers, including Turkish producers.

IAF and TCMA have brought this project to the stage because it shows such a good combination of a new generation of fashion companies, with new methods of financing, creating new business for manufacturers.

Colombian designer Andrea Landa, winner of the IAF Designer Award 2014 and Turkish designer Asli Filinta will share with the audience how they are growing a new fashion business.

From October 13-15, key players from the apparel industry will gather in Istanbul to talk about the current state of the fashion industry and will see delegates from over 20 countries. (AR)
