This fall, AFINGO.COM, the leading social-networking platform for the apparel manufacturing
community, will offer over a thousand industry professionals the rare
chance to interact with the leading minds of the fashion industry at its
inaugural daylong “BEHIND THE SEAMS” Fashion Industry Forum.
Presented at Manhattan’s world-famous Fashion Institute of Technology, “Behind The Seams” taps 30 top designers, apparel manufacturing
insiders, head buyers of top retail chains, editors, and celebrity
tastemakers to offer wisdom, opinions, and tips to a diverse audience of
fashion fans, press members, intrigued retailers, thriving
professionals, students from all of Manhattan’s prestigious design
schools, and many others looking for an edge as they climb the ladder of
one of the world’s most glamorous and competitive industries. Exposing
the birth of trends, the building of careers, and the tricks of
marketing and networking, the eight-hour, five-panel event will wrap up
with an intimate cocktail reception for speakers and select attendees.
Working in partnership with the internationally recognized MAGIC Marketplace and MAGIC Sourcing, AFINGO.COM will donate a portion of proceeds to the SAVE THE GARMENT DISTRICT
organization to help preserve New York City’s vibrant, vital apparel
production neighborhood and the business retail on it.
