Istanbul Fashion Conference Draws Record Number of Participants
DS-Concept was honored to be a part of the 8th Istanbul Fashion Conference & the 31st International Apparel Federation Convention that took place on October 14th-15th, 2015. Bringing together more than 700 attendees from over 25 countries, the event was a true success for the international apparel and textile industry. The theme of the event, “Making it Better”, was mirrored in all the keynote sessions which included Christoph Auhagen, CBO of Hugo Boss, Gordon Richardson, Creative Director at Topman, Kurt Cavano, Founder of GT Nexus, Leyla Ertur, CSR Country Manager of H&M and Ansgar Hütten, Executive Director of DS-Concept.
Presenting a case study, Mr. Hütten highlighted the ﬁrm’s innovative trade ﬁnance solutions for garment manufacturers in Turkey and their global textile suppliers. As he demonstrated in his presentation, the progressively complex nature of international supply chains has driven ﬁrms like DS-Concept to innovate and collaborate on a global level unseen in years before. How global buyers and suppliers can leverage innovative ﬁnancial instruments to free working capital caught in inventory and create cash-ﬂow for investments to further improve the supply chain was a recurring theme at the event. Other major brands including Cerruti, Loro Piana, Ermenegildo Zegna, Moncler, Express, Miroglio, Li & Fung, Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford International, Arcadia, Uniqlo, Nike, Lee Cooper, Celio, Polo Ralph Lauren, Citizens of Humanity, H&M, Sainsbury's, Debenhams and Inditex participated in the panel sessions and B2B meetings as well.
