In 2017, a group of seven European Fashion organizations came together to create a project that defended, promoted and developed independent Fashion in Europe.

Unit­ed Fash­ion is car­ried out by a clus­ter of Euro­pean fash­ion sup­port asso­ci­a­tions  MAD Brussels (BE), Flanders DC (BE), ModaLisboa (PT), Baltic Fashion Federation (LV), Maison de Mode (FR), Fashion Weekend Skopje (MK) and Fashion Council Germany (DE). We aim at enhanc­ing the cul­ture of fash­ion design­ers across Europe to be more busi­ness mind­ed and at enhanc­ing their com­pet­i­tive­ness inter­na­tion­al­ly, with­out lim­it­ing their creativity.  Unit­ed Fash­ion received the sup­port from the Cre­ative Europe pro­gramme of the Euro­pean Union.

Through a num­ber of inter­na­tion­al net­work events and trans­dis­ci­pli­nary train­ing work­shops, over a four-year peri­od, more than 150 fash­ion design­ers will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to par­tic­i­pate by show­cas­ing their col­lec­tion, get­ting to know and under­standing sev­er­al Euro­pean mar­kets, devel­op­ing new skills in fash­ion tech, sus­tain­able fash­ion, pro­duc­tion, craftsmanship, and business models.

As the host country, Fashion Weekend Skopje will invite selected labels from Belgium, France, Portugal, Latvia and Germany to Skopje in March 2019 to familiarize them with the South East Europe market.

Additionally, Unit­ed Fash­ion has also 16 asso­ciate part­ners: ACME — Aso­ciación Creadores de Moda de España (ES), Aus­tri­an Fash­ion Asso­ci­a­tion (AT), Cen­tre for Fash­ion Enter­prise – Uni­ver­si­ty of Arts Lon­don (UK), Coun­cil of Irish Fash­ion Design­ers (IR), Cyprus Fash­ion Design­ers Asso­ci­a­tion (CY), Design Ter­mi­nal (HU), Dutch Fash­ion Foun­da­tion (NL), Euro­peana Fash­ion Inter­na­tion­al Asso­ci­a­tion, Fédéra­tion française du Prêt à Porter féminin (FR), Fes­ti­val Inter­na­tion­al de Mode et de Pho­togra­phie d’Hyères (FR), Future in Fash­ion Foun­da­tion (PL), NFLH — Fash­ion Hun­gary (HU), Nor­we­gian Fash­ion Insti­tute (NO), Source­book (DE), Squat (SI), and Wal­lonie-Brux­elles Design Mode (BE)
