Here’s the thing: Industry expos and tradeshows aren’t just about finding new manufacturers (although this is very important!). They’re also an amazing opportunity to grow your professional network, learn more about the industry and develop your fashion business!

But mustering up the courage to attend a trade show is sometimes easier said than done – especially if it’s your first time. It can be intimidating to think about introducing yourself to new people, but it’s also important to see it as an opportunity to let your passion and dedication shine through so you can share your vision with the world!

It’s also helpful to remember these environments are filled with people who have experienced the same trials, setbacks and frustrations as you. Industry expos are a goldmine of like-minded people who are passionate about the same things as you (which makes a great recipe for conversation-starters!).

With all this talk about industry expos, how could we NOT have an announcement?!

We’re excited to announce that Fashion Equipped will be exhibiting at the International Sourcing Expo in Melbourne from the 20 – 22 November 2018.

Find us at stand F34 and meet the Fashion Equipped team!
