ABOUT

THE LATIN AMERICAN
FASHION SUMMIT

The LAFS is an empowerment platform that encourages emerging creatives and Latin American entrepreneurs in the fashion industry, providing them with an international setting to learn, connect and thrive. The LAFS platform will educate emerging designers and entrepreneurs by providing awareness of the current industry issues as well as solutions to the upcoming challenges shaping the future of fashion.

There is a pressing challenge to redefine the fashion industry: shifts in design, material sourcing, socially responsible manufacturing, new technologies and new business models. A new generation of designers and fresh minds are welcome to help overcome these challenges. Designers and guests will be able to exchange experiences, struggles, and successes providing an endless amount of takeaways for each.

The most valuable asset at the Latin American Fashion Summit platform is the networking opportunity that will be provided. Guests will be able to connect with a complete net of high-level executives, buyers, media representatives and investors through casual and formal opportunities for natural connections

TEAM

The LAFS was founded by Estefania Lacayo and Samantha Tams, two young Latin American women with over 15 years of experience in luxury fashion and retail. These two entrepreneurs are determined to equip undiscovered Latin American talent with know-how and introduce the vast natural resources that the region has to offer.
