Working with Nolcha was a great experience. Launching my collection, there was so much to take care of and they truly made it easier. Their team was very professional and guided me through the whole process. If it wasn’t for Nolcha, I would have not been able to launch my first collection. You guys are amazing!

Launching Innovation Awards in Nolcha Fashion Week has been a rewarding experience for both Ethical Fashion Forum and the awarded Designers, who enjoyed the benets of Nolcha’s widespread press coverage, recognition, and excellent buyer’s network.
