From New York to London, Paris to Milan, cities around the world are hosting fashion weeks to showcase some of the most innovative and creative designs in the industry.
Dallas Fashion Week presents DFW Forward –
it’s a new international platform that creates a bridge between fashion designers, artists, and the US market. The mission of this project is to connect the local and world’s hottest emerging and established designers with visibility and opportunities, providing valuable resources that enable designers to develop their businesses and embark on their global success journey. Its primary focus is to give local and international creators the resources needed to enter the US market, collaborate with local businesses. DFW Forward provides access to collective runway shows and collaboration with US companies for the local and international designers.
Organized by a creative entrepreneur, a fashion designer from Ukraine Nataliya Nova with her impressive 17 years of experience in global media (Cosmopolitan and Harper’s Bazaar), event management and fashion in partnership with Nova Strategy Group is taking DFW Forward experience to the next level opening new opportunities for established and upcoming designers and businesses.
As a brand, entering a new market is always a big challenge, especially when it comes to the United States. New York and Los Angeles may be the first places to come to mind, but these cities can be overwhelming and unpredictable. Often, brands are left only with a brief 15 minutes to showcase their products and make an impression. However, developing strong relationships with clients is crucial to long-term success. That’s why Dallas should be at the top of the list for brands looking to enter the US market. Dallas offers an environment that is both welcoming and supportive for businesses, with a strong focus on collaboration and networking. With its central location and growing influence, the city is a great place to make connections and build a solid foundation for any brand.
During our latest show we already presented 24 designers from different states and we continue to grow.
