Neliana Fuenmayor

New Market Entry Designer (2013)

“Monday was a new me. I had more ideas, more confidence about my way of approaching the current fashion industry, by knowing that considering other routes to develop my business is the future, not only the traditional way of contacting buyers and showcasing in fashion week. On a personal level, the programme gave me more courage to keep going and reach out to other developing markets as Toby pointed out. I am very happy programs like these are available to new businesses and emerging designers, and that concepts like transparency in production and cost calculation is being encouraged by the CFE.”Neliana Fuenmayor, Co-founder of ÆTHER
