The National Chamber of the Apparel Industry (CANAIVE) of Mexico, along with the Circle of Design, has started an activity to train upcoming designers in order to promote and help them migrate from informal industries to mainstream fashion and design industry.
The CANAIVE, with this new project, aims to promote designers engaged in the informal industries to turn into micro entrepreneurs and start their own business, reports Puebla Noticias.
The Circle of Design includes 30 industry professionals, who would provide training in accounting, tax and management, etc. to new designers in order to enable them to consolidate legally constituted businesses.
Alvaro Delgado Sanchez, director of CANAIVE, explained that among graduates from universities of fashion and design, every year around 110 professionals end up working in the informal industry, losing the opportunity of working in a highly potential market.
CANAIVE wants to provide such upcoming designers the tools to enable them to become formal entrepreneurs as well as provide them with the infrastructure to manufacture clothing, he added.
The director explained that the goal is to train around 1000 designers within the next two years and update these professionals by the means of Lectra and Gerber systems, which are new technologies in the world of fashion and design.
