“Ente Moda Italia is proud to embark on this new exhibition project in Toronto with the support of the Italian Trade Agency and all our valuable partners,” says Alberto Scaccioni, CEO, Ente Moda Italia. “Italy is a manufacturing country, with high level performances in all segments of the fashion industry and a strong attitude towards export. The Canadian market, for all its peculiarities, is indeed very interesting. This is due to its presence of a large middle and upper class, a retail scene with widespread multi-brand shops and its climatic conditions. All of this makes Canada an interesting market for Italian producers of outerwear and knitwear. Italian fashion is recognized globally for its unique design and creativity, high manufacturing quality and for the most sustainable industrial fashion processes in the world.


“We are thrilled for WeLoveModainItaly- La Moda Italiana@Toronto to return and support the innovative small-to-medium fashion enterprises within the CNA Federmoda Association. This event is a platform to explore how Canada and Italy can exchange and take advantage of our existing trade agreements,” says Antonio Franceschini, general secretary, CNA Federmoda Association. “We look forward to celebrating these 15 Italian fashion companies, renowned for their exceptional Italian craftsmanship, quality production and unique manufacturing processes.”


“It is so exciting to spearhead the introduction of these iconic Italian fashion brands into the Canadian market,” says Pietro Goglia, vice director, Italian Trade Agency in Canada. “With a commitment to presenting these products genuinely and proudly made in Italy, the Italian Trade Agency is dedicated to bringing the best of Italian manufacturers to Canadian wholesalers, distributors, multi-brand retailers, agents, department stores, boutiques, specialty stores, showrooms and marketplaces.”
