Thirty-six companies will take part in the event, promoted by Carpi Fashion System and organised by Consorzio Expo Modena. The autumn/winter edition will also be staged on the digital platform
Thirty-six companies will be taking part and, thanks to the potential of digital technology to display women’s fashion samples – clothing, knitwear, tailored garments, shirts and outerwear –buyers from around the world can browse the garments without leaving their home country. This is thanks to an online portal, which is safe for both buyers and exhibitors and that has been designed to allow the companies to show their creations, come into contact with clients and take orders.
This second staging of Moda Makers Digital comes after eight editions of the event and was set up to allow SMEs from the fashion industry to continue to display their creations to the entire world, overcoming the limitations imposed on international travel by the coronavirus pandemic.
The global situation, at the supply chain level, has not helped a sector that is in difficulty. However, the sector is doing everything possible to limit the efforts of the current crisis and continue to offer Italian quality and creativity, especially that of the Distretto di Carpi. Thanks to the fashion industry, it has become world famous.
The 36 companies – 23 from the Carpi area and 13 from other regions are: Acquamarine, Angela F, Brillante Bologna, Cocoba Fashion House, Confezioni Gigi’s, Creazioni Rosanna, Dani Confezioni, Donne da Sogno, ETC2.0, Famar, Gil, Gironacci, Idea Tessile, Il Trifoglio, Incontro, Io & Te Maglierie, Keo’, Mabal, Maglieria Paola Davoli, Maglificio Sofia, Make For, Micaela C., Mori Castello, New Terconf, Pioneer, Pour Moi, Pop Fashion Italian, Roberta Neri, Settimocielo, Sorriso, Tabula Rasa, Veronica Effe, Vezzo, Walmode, Yulkis (Eleonora Amadei) and Zanetti Moda.
In order to ensure that participating companies are provided with the highest levels of security, the organisers reserve the right to verify visitors’ credentials. This will be done to ensure that all visitors operate as legitimate wholesale buyers, fashion distributors, commercial agents or represent stores or specialised chains.
Another distinctive feature of this edition is that, once more, each company will be able to decide its degree of visibility: it will be the companies themselves to decide how many samples to show to each visitor or potential client.
The portal has also been designed to ease direct relationships between exhibiting companies and buyers. Following initial contact, buyers and producers will be able, if they wish, to interact without intermediaries. This means that prices, minimum production levels and the personalisation of samples will be a private negotiation between buyer and producer.
For the entire duration of the event, which will end in spring 2021, organising staff will be available to provide assistance to companies and clients.
Moda Makers Digital is organised by the Consorzio Expo Modena on behalf of the Carpi Fashion System and is the District’s company support project promoted by CNA, LAPAM-Confartigianato, Confindustria Emilia, Comune di Carpi and the Camera di Commercio di Modena, with the fundamental contribution of the Fondazione CR Carpi.
