This edition, Modefabriek launches the Young Entrepreneurs Platform (YEP) on the outdoor area. Before you enter Modefabriek you walk through this inspiring platform where more than 18 young, innovative and up-and-coming entrepreneurs present their collection. Modefabriek launches YEP together with Jarwo Gibson, founder of ABCNDstore.
ABCNDstore is a hybrid store that brings together the world of art, fashion and design. ABCND stands for Art Beauty Clothes Nature Design. In addition to carefully selected clothing from both Dutch and international designers, the concept store also has a range of design, beauty products and art. ABCND also focuses on sustainability, for example, the labels work on made to order with small-scale productions, seasonal collections, genderless collections and the store houses a variety of handmade items consisting of sustainable materials, upcycled and vintage. ABCNDstore founder Jarwo Gibson graduated from Artez in fashion design and worked for VAN DRIMMELEN, Maarten Spruyt, SPRMRKT, Painted Series, Christian Wijnants and Ménage à Trois.

In addition to a store, ABCND also functions as a PR / sales and consultancy agency for brands and makers, as an exhibition space, event space and as a multifunctional hub for stylists as well as curators, designers and artists. In this way ABCND creates a community between the audience and the makers, online and offline.
Modefabriek has always supported young entrepreneurs, brands and designers by offering them a stage at the event. Because of the connecting function, the focus on sustainability and unique label selection, Modefabriek found a good match in ABCNDstore. Together we made the selection of brands that have been invited to participate in the YEP.
