the iacde community platform
what’s in it for me?
IACDE offers the best networking opportunities in the industry; because we are all part of the same organization, it signals to one another we have the same interests at heart and all want to move forward – and that is the best basis for any future business relationship. Find partners to solve a specific problem, or find new employees/new employers easily on our platform!
IACDE members share hard-fought knowledge with one another, knowledge you won’t find anywhere else. IACDE members are driven, hard-working professionals eager to advance the industry as a whole. Through our community platform you can find Master Classes, Webinars, Virtual Events, and Live Streams of our in-person events!
Whether you’re just starting out or looking for that next major career opportunity, IACDE has you covered. Our members work at the world’s most renown fashion companies, either in an employee or even executive role, all the way to the C-Suite. Prove yourself among your peers and your dream career in the fashion industry is there for the taking. Share your work and get feedback from your fellow members or future employers!
IACDE holds an international convention every year in a major city around the world. From Florence to Porto, from Amsterdam to Stockholm, from Montreal to New York – we’ve been there. Explore these cities with your colleagues as part of an all-out learning event, and enjoy the same with your local chapter – visit factories or ateliers you never visited before. If you can’t attend for whatever reason, IACDE now offers the ability to Live Stream the event on demand!
Pricing & benefits
IACDE was built on the shoulders of patternmakers and technical designers, and therefore these groups enjoy the best rates.
Be among the best patternmakers and technical designers in the world, share knowledge, be aware of the latest developments, and advance your career.
If you’re not in a technical position, but do work in the wider fashion industry, wherever that may be, IACDE welcomes you.
That means executives, merchandisers, entrepreneurs, startup founders, software suppliers, programmers, educative leaders, and manufacturers.
Students are the future of the Fashion Industry, and we therefore welcome them with open arms at a heavily discounted rate.
Similarly, the experience and knowledge that senior members bring to the table is invaluable, and so they enjoy the same rates as our most junior members.
