IGFS is the event that welcomes fashion graduates from across the world to celebrate their talents and success representing their individual nations on one platform. IGFS 2017 took place on 9th July at Colombo Hilton during the French spring festival in Sri Lanka. Designers graduating from many Universities across the world demonstrated their first collection as new designers, launching themselves to the fashion industry. Designers from France, United Kingdom, Germany, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka participated in this event.
IGFS is conceptualized and organized by Lanka Institute of Fashion Technology and Mod’Art International (Sri Lanka branch) in partnership with the Embassy of France in Sri Lanka through IGFS we focus on developing cross cultural links, exchanging ideas, sharing talent and technical expertise from various countries, and encouraging young designers to build partnerships and create international businesses with new concepts to serve better in the fashion industry in the future.
New designers, breaking boundaries and joining hands internationally with one another, celebrating design, fashion, cultures and visions have opened many new avenues to experience fashion with value in the world. In a fast-moving world, where fast fashion is impacting many people and its process polluting the environment rapidly, we hope opportunities like IGFS could bring value to the fashion and apparel industry and the consumers of fashion.
