Who we are

What makes IACDE unique

No one else in the clothing industry is doing what IACDE is doing.

Each IACDE Meeting is providing a practice-to-practice approach combined with energizing conferences. We offer a dynamic constructive peer-to peer networking for anyone working in the clothing industry.

All workshops and events are driven by intensive exchange and a profound knowledge transfer. Stay up-to date on how IACDE is impacting product development from hands-on skills to a digital approach.

IACDE is shaping the future of the apparel industry in an exclusive network of 7 national clubs around the globe. Experts from the world’s leading apparel manufacturers and the supplying industry provide excellent further education. Together we create real know-how for executives, product developers, pattern designers and technical engineers.

”The knowledge sharing within IACDE has been my source of inspiration since joining the organisation in 2010. There have always been interesting and innovative learnings at each event. Through the organisation I have also met many interesting people across the globe. This is why I am an IACDE spokesperson and why I took part in founding the local chapter in Sweden. I look forward to continue bridging people with knowledge and sharing this with all the young talents of our organisation.”
