32nd IAF World Fashion Convention Speaker Announcement

The program for the IAF’s 32nd World Fashion Convention in Mumbai is going to be truly world class with a speakers list that is worthy for one of our industry’s main international fora. The IAF and the Clothing Manufacturers Association of India (CMAI) have combined forces to bring you a very strong combination of international speakers and the real top of the Indian apparel business.

Adriano Goldschmied, founder of Diesel and Replay; Vineet Gautam, CEO of Bestseller India; Alex Thomas, Vice President at VF; Shailesh Chaturvedi, CEO Tommy Hilfiger India; Faruque Hassan, senior vice president of BGMEA; J. Suresh, CEO of Arvind Brands and Darshan Mehta, President of Reliance brands are just a few of the absolute top speakers that this year’s Convention will bring together for a group of Indian and international delegates from September 26th-28th in the Trident Hotel Nariman Point in Mumbai, India.

The IAF’s 32nd World Fashion Convention in Mumbai will bring together some of the leading industry stakeholders across the value chain to deliberate and present insights into various opportunity areas – covering the entire spectrum from manufacturing to technology to branding and retailing. Also, each IAF Convention has as one of its main goals to connect in a profound way the local fashion industry of the host country to the global fashion industry network. In the world, India stands out for the size of its domestic market, for its enviable growth rate, for its deep rooted own design tradition, but also for its enormous complexity. Therefore, during this convention, insights into the fast growing Indian domestic market given by major Indian players will give delegates a very good understanding of how to capitalize on growth opportunities in complex emerging markets.

As a prime networking platform, encompassing several days of conference and memorable social events, the 32nd IAF World Fashion Convention not only gives insights into new opportunities, it actually creates new opportunities for all participants as well.
