The Fashion Network is aiming to be the number 1 outlet for the Global Apparel Industry to source, exchange contacts, and network in a professional environment.
We created the Fashion Network for anybody in the apparel industry - independent designers, models, wholesalers, sales reps, fashion PR's - who needs contacts, vendors, photographers, or just to network, but don’t have the necessary resources. I mean let’s be real - not everyone can afford to fly out to Magic or attend the hundreds of fashion trade shows and fashion weeks that occur annually.
