The International Fashion Support Foundation
The International Fashion Support Foundation (IFSF) aims at providing additional training by a (fashion) designer in the Netherlands for one or more carefully selected persons, from one or several (poorer) countries (world wide), who are already very handy with needle and thread and can sew. Ultimately resulting in participants returning to their country of origin, and setting up their own clothing business.

These persons could then teach their trade to other people, who in turn will be empowered to support themselves.

Provided this is a success one could start exporting the clothing, supported by the foundation.

Fashion designers may also make use of an exchange programme, in order to get into contact with each other, start a joint clothing business and get involved in fashion shows.

The foundation also aims at strengthening the ties between fashion designers world wide.

This non-profit foundation is seen as a surplus value in international fashion designing and intends to have a social function.

The foundation is the initiative of Maja Christina Steenwijk-Groot, located in Wassenaar, the Netherlands.
