The International Formalwear Association (IFA) is excited about Formal Fashion Week for 2017.
“The mart in Atlanta will be pumping with energy with not only Formal Fashion Week but with the Prom Show as well,” said Robert Gafa, IFA president.“
This will be a particularly special show for the men’s formalwear industry, in that we will have all of our industry organizations under one roof. If you want to learn how to improve your wedding and prom business, then you must not miss this event.”
Top designer fashions will be displayed by major manufacturers and there will also be many other products and services to help retailers with their bottom lines.
Additionally, there will be educational seminars for retailers and a Black Tie Gala, which will give attendees an opportunity to network with successful formalwear operators in the industry.
“SIFA is excited to be joined by IFA and Savvi members from across the country for Formal Fashion Week 2017!” said Keith Smith, SIFA president. “Never has the need for unity among independent business owners been more important.We face challenges on all fronts from online to big box operators. Strength in numbers as well as shared knowledge and insight is our best chance of survival.”
