Managua, Nicaragua; August 27, 2015
A Nicaraguan delegation comprised of two Nicaraguan designers and PRONicaragua, the country’s official investment and export promotion agency, will be traveling to Paris, France, in order to participate in the prestigious fashion tradeshow Who’s Next, which will take place on September 4-7 at the Porte de Versailles.
The Nicaraguan designers will be showing their full range of products made with 100 percent Nicaraguan materials at exhibition stands C79 (Shantall Lacayo) and C50 (Kuero by Ana A. Velasquez). Also, visitors will be able to learn about the latest trends in Nicaragua’s fashion industry.
The delegation has high expectations for this year’s edition of Who’s Next, since they will have the opportunity to establish key contacts through business meetings with internationally renowned brands.
Who’s Next is an international fashion tradeshow, which takes place twice a year, aimed at promoting emerging designers. The event presents independent designers and large international brands.
The country’s participation in this event is part of the competitiveness-strengthening program for Nicaraguan enterprises, an initiative of the Government of Nicaragua through the Ministry of Development, Industry and Trade in collaboration with the European Union and PRONicaragua. Throughout the year, PRONicaragua has accompanied local companies in various exhibitions in Europe including Seafood Expo in Brussels, Belgium, and SCAE, in Sweden among others.
