International expansion

An integral part of the fashion industry’s international ecosystem, the Federation is committed to establishing solid and permanent links with the entire range of its actors.Within the framework of its mission to promote the culture of French fashion and design, and PFW, it works on a wide-ranging series of lobbying actions on a national and international level. It has also become particularly involved in developing European cooperation through bilateral relations with its counterparts such as the Camera della moda in Italy and formal exchange with the European Commission.
The Federation supports and accompanies emerging brands in their commercial expansion internationally. For this reason, it works with the DEFI on financing their presence during special operations for example, and where relevant requests subsidies from local bodies. It can also rely on the diplomatic and consular network, or any other authority that represents France, in order to help brands with their launch.
