Not only will you learn how to write on Wikipedia, edit-a-thons are also a great way to meet like-minded people from all corners of the fashion sector and there will be plenty of networking opportunities during the breakfast, lunch and drinks after.

You can also participate in a tour of the museum’s latest fashion exhibition Dries Van Noten – Inspirations. The exhibition perfectly completements the theme of the day “fashion and craftmanship” as Dries Van Noten is known for his intricate detailing.
