Among the new partners are the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), the British Fashion Council (BFC) and Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (CNMI) in Milan.

“It has always been a major goal of DHL to support the fashion industry in all its different facets. The new approach will allow us to reach an even larger audience of fashion businesses consistently throughout the year with tailored support across their various needs, from producing a collection to shipping it to fashion shows and setting up an e-commerce presence.” said Arjan Sissing, Senior Vice President Corporate Global Brand Marketing, Deutsche Post DHL Group.
