We hope you had Great Christmas Celebrations and are now eagerly waiting for the New Year Eve to welcome the New Year 2020 and the New Decade 2020-2029.
We are pleased to announce the plans for a Pitching Day for Fashion Designers, Fashion Startups and FashTech Startups in first week of February 2020, preferably on 5th February if we can tie up all the requirements by second week of January, 2020. The event will be suitable for independent fashion designers, fashion design students, FashTech startups in Fashion Technology, fashion brands involved in sustainable and ethical fashion. The event will help participants in finding funding, incubation packages or mentoring support which will help them on the path to success and growth in this fiercely competitive industry.
During our last fashion event on 14th September 2019, all the participants, panel members and other fashion brands felt that the Pitching Session was a very short session and could have been a full day event. Some also felt that the time was too short to prepare engaging pitch and prepare for the event.
Keeping that in mind, this time around we are looking to keep an entire day as a Pitching Day to give pitching opportunity to around 25-30 fashion brands.
Following process will be strictly followed, so please make sure you register well in time and send in your pitch at the earliest. We WILL NOT be accepting ANY LAST MINUTE Participants.
01. Registration and Submission of the Pitch: January 15, 2020
02. Confirmation from FatakaFashions.com: January 25, 2020
We may also arrange one to one meeting or telephonic talk between 16th January and 25th January to find out at what stage you are in your fashion business and whether any improvements are required to your pitch.
We are in touch with the fashion industry stalwarts to be included in the Panel. We will also announce the panel of experts from Fashion Industry including Angel Investors and Fashion Funds by 20th January 2020.
We will announce the panelists on this page, so keep visiting the page regularly. Further developments including the venue and fashion event activities will also be updated regularly on this page.
Ten to fifteen promising fashion labels from the shortlisted fashion startups will be invited to participate in the exhibition at the venue on the event day to display their latest collections to trade buyers and industry visitors.
Five to six startups who are selected by the Panel Members will be invited to present their Summer / Spring Fashion Collections at the networking evening at the same venue.
