ENEWS I 9.12.2016

Display your design excellence at the 2nd WFDA 2017

With its first debut in 2016, the World Fashion Design Competition and Award (WFDA) 2017 will be launched again to welcome fashion producers to demonstrate their capabilities of manufacturing designed fashion items to their potential clients from around the world.  WFDA is the B2B platform truly customised for fashion producers.


How to win orders amid the gloomy global economy and sluggish fashion sales is the key to success.  Strengthening design capabilities to outpace the rivalry seems a win-win approach.  Thus, WFDA emerges to fill this gap - to synergise the collaboration between fashion designers and producers in order to provide international brands and e-/retailers with a broader selection.

Showcase, recognition, networking … all in two-days

Acting as a springboard for future business collaboration, WFDA is to showcase fashion suppliers’ design excellence to the senior executives of the buying offices who are delegates of the two-day Prime Source Forum (PSF). Last year, executives of East Max, Quiksilver, Ralph Lauren, Sears, VF and others presented six (6) awards at the WFDA.  Click here to apply for WFDA2017 now without delay.
