Alicia Mullings took part in our 2016 launch and participated in Fashion Week Brooklyn in New York. Fashion Week Brooklyn has emerged as one of the leading fashion events showcasing the talent of aspiring and established designers from across the globe.
Bukola Dagiloke from the Global Fashion Marketplace says “The partnership between Fashion Week Brooklyn and Global Fashion Marketplace allows our brands to access a platform on an international stage to test the market, network and make the right connections to go forward and start building world class fashion brands. Our mission is to empower and equip smaller brands to compete in the global markets”.
This is what Alicia had to say about the what the collaboration has done for her business development and global endeavours.
"Excited, focused and humbled are the three words to describe how I was feeling in preparation for the debut showcase of my designs in the United States. It is very comforting to have an established New York platform and collaboration team that are able to provide me with support when introducing my business to a wider audience. I am very appreciative to have been selected for this opportunity"
Since participating in Fashion Week Brooklyn Alicia has decided to move to New York permanently due to the contacts and expanded network she has acquired through her debut in New York. She is planning on developing her own shows in the city with plans of opening her own store with the on going support of the Global Fashion Marketplace.
This is what Alicia had to say about her first experience out in New York in 2016.
“A life changing trip to the point that I feel that I have to move to America” – Alicia Mullings
