Trend Forum/Spring Summer 2019, 24th August 2018
EDB Mauritius is consistent in its efforts to bolster exports of textile and apparel enterprises. In this regard, the Economic Development Board has renewed its partnership with Carlin Creative Trend Bureau, a leading French trendsetter with view to further support export-oriented enterprises. Accordingly, the EDB in collaboration with Carlin Creative Trend Bureau is organising a Trend Forum on 24th August 2018. The forum will play a key role to update designers, pattern makers, merchandisers and marketers about future trends in colour, design and products as well as to present the Spring/Summer 2019 trends. It will also enable exporters to create their collections which will be showcased during Premiere Vision, a well-known global fashion trade show which will be held from 19th to 21st September in Paris.
The Trend Forum also aims at motivating and inspiring designers (independent & from Industry) to enhance their creativity and better equip Mauritius to face the growing competition from low cost suppliers from emerging economies. The event will see the participation of 100 stakeholders from the industry.
