The first edition of the Kish International Fashion Festival (Kishmod) will be held May 5-9 at the International Convention Center on the tourist resort.

The event is co-organized by the Iranian Working Group for Organizing Fashion and Clothing, and Kish Free Zone Organization for Tourism Affairs, Honaronline quoted Emadoddin Golab, executive director of the event and head of ‘Naqshineh Pood’ Company, as saying.

He said Kish Island was selected as the venue due to its proximity to the target market that includes the seven Persian Gulf Arab countries and South Asian nations India and Pakistan.

The island’s numerous shopping malls and the efficient infrastructure like international exhibition centers, all in all make Kish Island a suitable place for the festival.

The event will see investors, shopping mall owners, relevant officials and Tehran-based diplomats, cinema and TV actors and theater artists.

It will also have workshops on fashion photography, tailoring, applying origami designs on fabric, introducing Iranian style fabrics, and conference sessions in the field.

The festival aims to encourage competition among local fashion designers and apparel producers and to further introduce Iranian designs and patterns to the participants, besides providing opportunities to expand in the field.
