CFE Seminar at Indonesia Fashion Forward
On 26 January 2017, London College of Fashion sponsored a one-day public seminar in Jakarta, Indonesia, as part of the CFE’s Indonesia Fashion Forward (IFF) business support programme. The seminar, which was open to IFF designers and the wider Indonesian fashion designer community, was led by CFE consultants Sanjeev Davidson and Toby Meadows.
The event included seminars on ‘Managing Creative Teams’, ‘How to start a fashion business on a budget’, as well as conversation sessions with IFF alumni designers Major Minor discussing real-life experiences, advice for new designers and lessons learned. Ari Seputra of Major Minor spoke about the benefits of taking part in the IFF programme, commenting that it ‘made a huge change in their business strategy, resulting in their international success’.
The CFE consultants will return to Jakarta in April, for the second stage of the IFF 2017 programme, to follow up on the progress of the designers.
