A breath of design & fashion will enclose Prague. The greatest showcase of contemporary Czech and Slovak fashion, Mercedes-Benz Prague Fashion Week, will be taking place for the third time and includes the Business Forward Forum supported by ČEZ & Forbes conference on fashion and textile business.

“This conference not only inspires but also helps to develop the potential of promising Czech brands in the Czech and foreign markets,” says ČEZ marketing director Michaela Ziková.

This year’s discussion will address following questions – What is the current situation of Czech fashion and textile industry, which business strategies do the local leaders consider successful for domestic and international markets, what are Czech fashion’s and textile production’s prospects, how is the situation of fashion affected by the ever growing influence of digitalization as well as rise of the east and south markets?
