The three-day exhibitions held from July 23 to 25, 2013, attracted 65,000 visitors and 1,788 international buyers from 50 countries who attended the fair in three areas of the exhibition, Trade Show, Walkaways and Pavilion of Knowledge.
 
The revenues of the three fairs Colombiamoda, Textiles 2 and Fashion for the World, collectively exceeded expectations, and local and foreign visitors were able to enjoy three shows in one place and could access a trade that represented the entire Fashion System of Colombia.
 
CEO of Inexmoda, Carlos Eduardo Botero Hoyos said, with the support of the Mayor of Medellin the 24th edition of Colombiamoda managed to witness a resounding success and was able to exhibit the entire fashion system.
 
The results of the exhibition demonstrated the efforts Inexmoda made to promote opportunities for partnerships and innovation to strengthen the sector, he added.
 
The three-day exhibition had 27 fashion gateways attended by over 30,000 visitors, including 9 shows belonging to Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 trademarks, 13 shows from various renowned designers, as well as three fashion schools.
 
The highlights of the exhibition included a prelude to the opening show by French-Colombian designer Haider Ackerman, considered to be the ‘Prince of Fashion’ and one of the most representative figures of the fashion world who displayed a collection that celebrated 25 years of the organizer Inexmoda.
 
Top designers showcased their collections during the exhibitions including world renowned designers, Andrea Sanchez, Manuela Alvarez, Francesca Miranda and Silvia Tcherassi.
