The Fashion Forward Network (FFN) is an initiative to support sustainable business partnerships in the fashion industry between Berlin and the USA. In various formats, participating brands have the opportunity to make new key contacts in the USA, strengthen their knowledge about market entry in the USA and establish themselves in the US market in the long term.
