Unieke samenwerking versterkt positie Nederlandse mode-industrie
Amsterdam – Amsterdam Fashion Week en Modefabriek gaan hun krachten bundelen. Door deze zomer de banden aan te halen en de programma’s op elkaar af te stemmen, bieden de organisaties jonge talenten, gevestigde ontwerpers, merken, inkopers, agenten, investeerders en pers een nog sterker platform om elkaar te ontmoeten en van elkaar te profiteren. Met de samenwerking hopen de twee grootste modeorganisaties van Nederland verder bij te dragen aan de groei van de Nederlandse mode-industrie en de internationale positie van Amsterdam als Creative Capital te versterken.
Binnen- en buitenlandse bezoekers van Modefabriek (14 en 15 juli 2013) kunnen hun beursbezoek nu combineren met een bezoek aan de shows van Amsterdam Fashion Week (6 – 16 juli 2013) en zich laten inspireren door het talent van Nederlandse bodem. Na online registratie krijgen bezoekers van Modefabriek de exclusieve mogelijkheid om kaarten voor de shows van Amsterdam Fashion Week te kopen. Showende ontwerpers komen zodoende makkelijker en veelvuldiger in contact met inkopers en retailers, die op hun beurt completer worden geïnformeerd over ontwerpers en merken.
