Designers to rock city with fashion for ISTANBUL FASHION DAYS
Jul '09
Istanbul is getting ready for a fashion fiesta to be enjoyed by the whole city with ISTANBUL FASHION DAYS(IFD), where Turkish fashion designers and ready-to-wear brands will be gathered under one roof for the first time.

Istanbul Fashion Days, a first in Turkey, with the cooperation of ITKIB and Fashion Designers Association(MTD) has been introduced to the press in a press conference.

In his opening speech, Chairman of the Istanbul Ready-to-Wear and Apparel Exporters Association(IHKIB) Hikmet Tanriverdi pointed out that they have started a new era for the sector in Turkey, and that ISTANBUL FASHION DAYS(IFD) will be contributing to the Turkish economy while accelerating the fashion sector.

Fashion Designers Association (MTD) President Bahar Korçan spoke after Tanriverdi and she stated that; “we have been working voluntarily for the development of this sector for the last 24 years yet the Turkish fashion sector, which feeds from the cultural riches of this country, needs unity”.

ISTANBUL FASHION DAYS(IFD) will be taking place at the Taskisla Campus of Istanbul Technical University(ITÜ) between the dates 26-29 August and there will be three sub events under the main roof of IFD.

While ISTANBUL FASHION LAB, which is a fashion show and boutique fair organization of our leading fashion designers, will be displaying the collections of Turkish designers to the world under the roof of IFD; BRANDIST, which focuses on our ready-to-wear companies, will be the fashion show and fair platform for the brands. ITKIB's Young Fashion Designers Contest, which presents an important platform to young fashion designers and enables their entry into the sector, will continue under the body of IFD this year with a new name, KOZA.

Turkey will now have a mark in the world fashion calendar with ISTANBUL FASHION DAYS (IFD), which has been set up to provide information from Turkey to the rest of the world on fashion design and to attract the attention of the world's leading fashion press and buyers to Istanbul.
