THE UNITED FASHION PROJECT

The United Fashion project is carried out by eight European fashion organisations: MAD Brussels (BE), Flanders DC (BE), ModaLisboa (PT), Baltic Fashion Federation (LV), Maisons de Mode (FR), Fashion Weekend Skopje (MK), Fashion Council Germany (DE) and Not Just A label (UK).

Supported by the Creative Europe programme of the EU, the project aims to strengthen the position of fashion designers throughout Europe by enhancing their business skills and international reach – without limiting creativity.

Over the three year duration of the programme, more than 150 designers can benefit from a series of international networking events and interdisciplinary training workshops, the opportunity to present their collections in various European markets, and engage with the latest in fashion technology and sustainable production.
