MADIFESTO AKA European Fashion Summit in Brussels brought to you by MAD Fashion and Design Center – Second edition of MADIFESTO and first edition of the MADIFESTO SUMMIT

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I was really happy to attend the first fashion summit MADIFESTO. The summit united 16 countries which included Heads of Fashion Councils from around Europe, journalists, buyers, and other industry professionals who make up the European Fashion Community. There were lectures, workshops and the MAD showroom. I had a little dialogue with Didier Vervaeren and Stefan Siegel spoke about his new project ORIGINS and his recent trip to the Ukraine and the plight of the designers over there. He also mentioned the VICE video which I had seen and you should watch. After the conferences and workshops, I visited the MAD showroom, a few images are included here.
