Connecting Through Fashion / April 30
The fashion show of the winning entries of the National Fashion Chamber of Serbia ‘Connecting Through Fashion’ open call will be held in the SCC Fabrika on 29 and 30 April as part of the Future of Europe programme arch.
The National Fashion Chamber of Serbia is promoting young designers from Novi Sad, Serbia, and Europe through the project ‘Connecting Through Fashion’ with the aim of educating and motivating behaviour change and creating a positive impact of fashion on today’s society and the future of our planet.
The project includes open calls for the National Competition for students and young designers, the European Competition for students and young designers and the competition for the best creations inspired by the positive impact of fashion on environmental protection.
The educational part of the project provides young people with new knowledge and skills that contribute to the development of the cultural and creative sector and encourage a proactive approach of young people in solving social and environmental problems.
Schedule for Saturday, 30 April:
1 p.m. – Seminar / Workshop: ‘Young Lions in the Jungle’, on the topic of marketing and communication
How much has fashion marketing changed in the digital age? What does good fashion marketing mean today? Is it primarily a successful collaboration with influencers, direct marketing, a classic fashion campaign, or a cleverly designed and realised fashion event? Is it worth taking shortcuts, or is it still better to choose the ‘path of a thousand miles’? After all, where should the young designer lions who have just started to give the outlines of the brand to their fashion manuscript start from? These are just some of the dilemmas on which marketing and fashion experts will present their views.
