These are the numbers of Moda Makers’ third edition, the event which will take place from the 16th until the 18th of May in the historical Piazzale Re Astolfo in the city centre of Carpi.


In the heart of a fashion district, which boasts a vocation for the textile and clothing industry, some of the best companies in this sector have combined efforts by sharing their database of buyers and clients and by creating a joined communication strategy in order to promote the know-how of the area.


This approach has already shown positive results in the last edition of Moda Makers. Now the promoters – Expo Modena, which organises the event with the support of Promec and Carpi Fashion System; along with the plan of promoting the firms of the fashion district fostered by the business association of the area, CNA, LAPAM-Confartigianato, CONFINDUSTRIA and the district of Carpi, with the fundamental contribution of Fondazione CR Carpi – are willing to outdo these results, showing how only 20 days prior to the event (data was updated at 11 a.m. on the 26th of April), the preregistration number has increased significantly compared to the previous edition.

Lisa Mood, Angela F, Ann Max, Capriccioli, Creazioni Graziella, Creazioni Rosanna & CO, Dielle, Donne da sogno, Emmegi2, Erika, Etc 2.0, Famar, Gi & Di, Giglio Rosso, Gil, Gironacci Arduino, Giovani Idee, GlòdiModa, Guerzon, Idea tessile, Incontro, Io&te Maglierie, Linea Donna, Luciano Pavarotti, Maglieria Paola, Davoli & C, Maglierie Ellegi, Maglificio Frarosa, Milva P, Mita, Moda Milena, Mr. Giuly Mode, New Miba, Pandora, Razzoli, Roberta Neri, Rosso Perla, S&M Group, S.E.A, Settimocielo, Severi Silvio, Sorriso, Spruzzi, Tabula Rasa, Talea by Perini, Trifoglio, Veronica Effe, Walmode, Weg Fashion Group, Yulkis. Their creations will be available to be seen and touched by the more than 700 visitors expected at the event.

In the words of Simone Morelli, Carpi’s Economy Assessor, “Moda Makers is growing with a larger number of companies and visitors taking part in the event, this is the testimony that teamwork and collaboration create a critical mass which makes the difference in the face of the challenges imposed by global economy. Togetherness makes strength and Moda Makers is the proof. I am therefore confident that all the entities involved in this project, which puts a sheen on one of the most important industries of our territory, will keep teaming up in order to reach even more challenging goals.”
