The Balkans are the new profitable strategy of the fashion industry in Europe
2002-2006 was a period of intensive development of the sewing industry in Bulgaria in relation to investments in modern technological equipment. The number of the people employed in the industry are correspondingly - Bulgaria /170 000/ and Romania /280 000/. In 2007 Bulgaria and Romania entered the European Union and the customs tariffs were removed. In 2010 the present business situation requires short production series, high quality, competitive prices, and fast delivery terms.
RICHMART INNOVATION – the aim of the congress is to bring together Western Europe and the confection and fashion industry of the Balkans. It is also an opportunity for designers – the people without whom fashion creation would be impossible.
