Dean Manev, the sales manager of the Men's Fashion Cluster, also visited the event. There he presented the Men's Style project and showed to young fashion designers from the Netherlands and abroad how they can start their own menswear fashion lines and create made-to-measure ateliers with the support of the cluster. The designers were very interested in the business opportunities this international project gives and decided to join it and start designing their men's suits collections.
