WORTH Project Team

The WORTH PROJECT was a partnership between Institut Français de la Mode (IFM) and London College of Fashion’s Centre for Fashion Enterprise (CFE). Both organisations are combining their expertise and knowledge to cultivate cross European partnerships producing innovative products and processes.

The Italian representative body for creative SMEs (CNA/Federmoda) has provided a thorough expertise in manufacturing industries and contributed to a deeper understanding of their needs.

EURATEX the European federation of textile industries has helped disseminate WORTH programme – and later its findings – throughout the EU industrial network. The steering Board had external professional members including product designers, design led brands or retailers, representatives of leading fashion and design schools in the EU, fashion and design opinion formers like design magazines, and other experts, in addition to members of the operational team.
