Bcapital, the cool, smart and fashion event returns to Bogota
On October 17 and 18, Hotel Tequendama in Bogota will host the fifth edition of Bcapital, one of the most important events in Colombian fashion and design. Organized by the Institute for Export and Fashion (Inexmoda), the objective of Bcapital is to promote fashion through the creative industries.
For two days, the city will be filled with the unexpected and the unusual as it addresses sustainability and issues that are at the forefront in fashion. Bcapital is a space that strives to take fashion out of its established conventional standards to make way for unusual and disruptive proposals.
Consistent with its previous editions, the event will be divided into three main pillars: B smart, a space that brings a number of fashion experts together for conferences, forums and master classes; B fashion, which features runways and art and experience-based fashion performances; and B cool, which is a space open for designers to share their collections and pieces with the public.
Events like these seek to demonstrate the potential of Bogota’s fashion sector, showcasing the unique identity and original designs that are characteristic of designers from Bogota and Colombia who have put the country in the spotlight of foreign investors. In 2018 alone, the value of the Colombian fashion industry was $939.5 million dollars.
Additionally, 58% of the industry’s investment initiatives that came to Colombia between 2013 and 2018 were first based in Bogota, resulting in the creation of 5,500 direct jobs in the city.
This is what the Bcapital experience will look like this year. Its program will be available soon on the event’s official website: http://bcapital.com.co/en/
