Top textile industry speakers are set to take part in the 35th IAF World Fashion Convention event which will be held on November 12-13, 2019, in Lahore, Pakistan. Co-produced with the Pakistan Readymade Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (PRGMEA) the leading fashion industry event will bring together global apparel industry leaders.

Previous editions were held in Istanbul, Mumbai, Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro, Porto, Shanghai and Maastricht. This year, the IAF Board of Directors has chosen Pakistan as the host of the 35th IAF World Fashion Convention, because it has significant textile and apparel industries and because the potential for further growth is large following an important improvement in the safety situation in the country. The convention draws on average 300 delegates usually coming from over 20 countries, according to a press release on the event.

Speakers at the previous editions came from PVH, H&M, Desigual, Disney, VF, Zegna, Esquel and Escada, as well as BCG, the World Bank, and the OECD. This year, among the speakers will be Joachim Hensch, managing director of Hugo Boss Textile Industries; Wilson Zhu, COO of Li & Fung; Stefanie Artman, director international sourcing of Kik, Germany; Erbu Debbag, executive director-global sales and marketing at Soorty Enterprises and Christopher Veit, CEO of Veit.

On November 12, 2019, IAF and PRGMEA will host a festive fashion dinner for all delegates. The dinner will offer the stage for the award ceremony of the IAF-PRGMEA Global Fashion Award 2019. This competition will be a major catalyst for awareness and education on sustainable fashion for the Pakistani apparel fashion industry. (GK)
