Got a passion for fashion? The first edition of The Latin American Fashion Summit (LAFS) is coming to Andaz Mayakoba Nov. 8-11 and will feature industry leaders, fashion experts and more. These pros will share how to break into the industry, insider tips and knowledge and how to overcome obstacles. 

The three-day event will offers guests an assortment of activities developed to foster creativity, promote the exchange of ideas, evaluate the feasibility of initiatives and connect attendees with an amazing network. Through panels and workshops, this year’s focus will be on sustainability, technology, and social responsibility. The list of panelists consists of a worldly selection of designers, tech/fashion investors, CEOs, editors, bloggers and fashion influencers. Panelists and mentors will collectively address critical issues to establishing a brand, remaining relevant through culture and innovation. Most importantly, they will offer insights on to how to overcome the myriad of challenges that Latin American creatives face as a whole.

The most valuable asset at the Latin American Fashion Summit platform is the networking opportunity that will be provided to creatives, designers and businesses.

Guests will be able to connect with a complete network of high executive levels, buyers, media representatives and investors through casual and formal opportunities for natural connections.
