What do you love about being an FGI Member? FGI provides a unique opportunity to connect with like minded people, explore new opportunities and reconnect with fashion industry professionals. Often in a relaxed social environment, away from ones daily work. I like the dynamics of the leadership team that fills each year with exciting events and aims to bring the most interesting people to share the latest news, trends and happenings in the fashion world.
