Our vision is to create a stronger fashion sector in Europe by giving independent labels and creators the tools and skills to develop their business in a globalized world.
United Fashion is carried out by a cluster of European fashion support associations, and initiated by MAD Brussels Fashion and Design Platform. We aim at enhancing the culture of fashion designers across Europe to be more business minded and at enhancing their competitiveness internationally, without limiting their creativity.
Through a number of international network events and transdisciplinary training workshop, more than 150 fashion designers will have the opportunity to participate by showcasing their collection, getting to know and understand several European markets, developing new skills in fashion tech, sustainable fashion, production, craftsmanship, business models.
