- Who we are
The IACDE Nordic Chapter is a local chapter in Sweden and a member of the IACDE International organisation.
The chapter was founded in February 2014. Our aim is to create a platform and a forum for knowledge transfer and networking between our members from the apparel industry in Sweden and as we grow in the Nordic countries. This is made possible by arranging themed events for our members.
We are planning to hold one to two themed full day events per year where we gather our members to listen to speakers, take part in workshops/discussions and to network.
In the Nordic Chapter today we have 60+ design members from 20+ companies. They are pattern makers, pattern designers and technical designers from different parts of the Swedish apparel industry. They come from both the men’s and women’s wear brands and they are working with tailored garments, casualwear, sportswear and denim. We also have three Swedish schools represented in the chapter. We are the networking platform for all sectors of pattern designers worldwide. Continuing to shape the future of tailored, casual, denim and sports fashion.
"IACDE is a very good opportunity, especially for our young technical designers in Japan, to enlarge knowledge and increase business while connecting with a global peer group."
