Making and selling fashion in China -conference

Monday, 5 November, 2012
NJAL

China is a desirable but also rather difficult market for the UK fashion industry. The very different culture, the sheer scale of the country and the inconsistency of rights enforcement create challenges but also opportunities for any fashion business that would like to sell or manufacture in China.

DISC, CFE and Own-it have invited a wide range of experts from both the fashion industry (including representatives from Matthew Williamson and Roland Mouret) and business and legal support projects to share their experiences of making and selling fashion in China.

The conference is in two parts, the first part in the morning will cover breaking into the market and trading in China, while the second part will address the challenges of manufacturing for the fashion industry.

Date/Time: 14th November 2012: 10.15am – 15.30pm
Free China IPR SME Helpdesk surgery: 15.30 - 17.00pm (see www.own-it.org for more details)

Location: London College of Fashion, W1G 0BJ

Tickets: £10 or 100 Own-it points (this includes a working lunch).

This conference is organised by DISC, Own-it and the Centre for Fashion Enterprise with the support of the China IPR SME Helpdesk.
