Background Responsible Fashion Series


The Responsible Fashion Series Skopje emanates from the Fashion Colloquia collection of events, founded by four institutions: London College of Fashion, Parsons school of Fashion and Design in New York, IFM, Paris and Domus from Milan. Ian King is the thought leader behind the organisation of Fashion Colloquia events across various destinations on the planet for the last decade.

What made professor Ian King choose the Balkans as his next Responsible Fashion Series Skopje destination? What is something fascinating or surprising about Balkan fashion that he has discovered?

RFSS will discuss and reflect on the critical theme of ‘value’ in crafts and fashion, education, careers for youth, and, more widely, for the future of the fashion and crafts industry in the Balkans.

The event is scheduled to be held on 05 and 06 May 2021.

  • Heritage (Jaipur, January 2020),
  • Disruption Fashion (Rome, September 2019),
