Greetings Fashion, Tech & Impact Enthusiasts, we have fabulous news for you!

We’re thrilled to invite you to be a part of an extraordinary journey that transcends borders and fuels innovation – Fashion Forward Network’s upcoming delegation trip to the bustling city that never sleeps, New York City! After the resounding success of our inaugural delegation bridging Berlin and NYC’s fashion and tech impact scene, we are ready to embark on a new adventure from the 14th to the 19th of April 2024. We plan to provide a packed, but modular program that perfectly aligns with our mix of fashion brands and tech & impact startup participants.


πŸ’‘ Inspiring Connections, Catalyzing Growth

Our project, Fashion Forward Network (FFN), is on a mission to foster groundbreaking business partnerships between Berlin and the USA. We’re not just creating connections; we’re sculpting a future where sustainability and digitalisation thrive on both sides of the Atlantic. The last delegation, as captured in this glowing review, serves as a testament to the power of collaboration and innovation in the fashion industry.

🌐 What is FFN All About?

Fashion Forward Network links established fashion brands and tech & impact startups based in Berlin with influencers, institutions, experts, and multipliers in the USA. We offer tailored resources to meet your business needs, from market entry strategies and legal counsel to participation in leading trade fairs.
