The conference, its conclusions and the professional report extracted at the end will be the first step to open a debate and present proposals for action at the Mesa de la Moda de Autor, set up last November in line with the Sustainable Development Goals set out in the Agenda 2030, and which counts with the active involvement of ACME. The table was created to develop a strategic program for the promotion and broadcasting of Spanish designer fashion that will allow it to gain economic momentum, increase its competitiveness and obtain the international recognition it deserves for its unquestionable cultural and identity value as well as for for its enormous artisanal crafts heritage.

In addition to ACME, the Mesa de la Moda de Autor is made up of representatives from the Autonomous Communities, Mercedes Benz-Fashion Week Madrid catwalk, 080 Barcelona Fashion platform, ICEX, ENISA, EOI, Tourespaña, the General Directorate of Economic Diplomacy and the General Directorate of Industries and SMEs.
