Nemona Challenge: open forms of collaboration in a locally based fashion industry in Berlin

Could the fashion network NEMONA be successfully developed as a multi-label brand?

Which are the most important aspects in the development of a business case “multi-label brand NEMONA”?

NEMONA is a fashion incubator and network in the field of fashion and production in Berlin-Neukölln and it is aimed at fashion designers and seamstresses. The aim is to promote the partnership networking between these two groups for new sources of jobs and to develop business models. Since September 2015 NEMONA is concentrating on sales to strengthen and stabilize the local economy / textile sector in Berlin-Neukölln.

In this context we would like to discuss with you, how we could devolope a sustainable business model.
