Fashion is certainly one such industry that is always seeking fresh ideas, hunting for new talents and exploring new innovations. The ever-changing trends of the industry demand developing platforms for young and emerging designers to showcase their novelty in the market with conviction, before they become a full-fledged part of the industry.
This is where the need of platforms for upcoming fashion designers arises. Here are some platforms that can come as handy for budding fashion freaks:
IFS (International Fashion Show)
