The space for future designers
FIMI’s nuditos also returns. The space for new creators and young talent who would like to become well known, reinforcing FIMI’s commitment to creativity and quality. This edition already counts on more than 30 participants from different countries who will exhibit their work and organise various workshops for all professionals. Nuditos also counts on their own catwalk which will take place over three days at 1 p.m.
Fashion solidarity and commitment to the environment
FIMI also commits to the environment and their solidarity initiatives, with the projects Fashion Solidarity and FIMI and the environment. The first is an initiative whose participating companies donate clothes to less advantaged families. They also commit to the protection of minors using the internet, and have collaborated with ALIA2 “for a safer internet for our children”. FIMI additionally wants to reward participating brands which are respectful to the environment.
Lastly, FIMI is based on many businesses, ideas and lots of creativity, to the extent of companies which have only recently been created, because the goal is to optimise these companies to maximise their participation.
