IED Barcelona at the European Fashion Summit
IED Barcelona will attend at the 4th edition of the MADIFESTO – EUROPEAN FASHION SUMMIT on 14 & 15 November 2017 that will take place in Brussels, Belgium. Since 2014 more than 30 national and regional European fashion councils, promotion associations, incubators and a number of fashion professionals unite yearly to reflect about the future of European fashion design, independent fashion designers and labels.
Last edition, the attending fashion councils and institutions signed a letter of intention to join forces and cooperate officially on a European level. This November, there will be revealed the result: United Fashion Project, an initiative supported and funded by the Creative Europe program of the European Commission. The projects aim to facilitate a closer collaboration between European partners within an official network by sharing information, knowledge, contacts and offering a connection platform to all actors of the European fashion design sector/industry such as independent fashion designers & labels, schools & students and all professionals active in the fashion sector.
