Further information

"Boosting competitiveness of Catalan fashion"

Our scope of action goes from design to fashion product distribution, going through industry, logistics and all those activities that belong to the fashion value chain.

For MODACC, fashion means all those activities and businesses that:

  • 1. Focus intensively on design and creativity
  • 2. Follow a cyclic process: products and services are subjected to a continuous innovation
  • 3. Resulting products and services are linked to the personal equipment

Strategic Lines:

  • INTERNATIONALIZATION

Internationalization provides companies with the opportunity to expand and grow in a global market.

MODACC helps companies locate customers interested in their products and services around the world: business missions, attendance to fairs, own commercial offices in several countries, market information and guidance as well as technical and legal advice. These are some of our international services.

  • INNOVATION

Fostering collaboration between technology centres, universities and other partners is a key enabler to create new products and processes focused on the consumer and new market opportunities. To drive our innovation platform at MODACC, we have decided to focus on the following key areas: the consumer's knowledge, Internet, building sustainable businesses, functionalization of clothing products or digitalization of industrial processes.

  • INDUSTRIALIZATION

We are working on recovering a new fashion industry in Europe: flexible, digitalized, sustainable and highly competitive.

We are aware that it is essential to have an industrial base in Catalonia to become a competitive and innovative territory in the fashion sector and, therefore, we develop initiatives that encourage the industrial base such as promoting industrial aptitudes and fairs to connect producers and distributors.

  • TRAINING

MODACC develops training initiatives for new professionals.

We facilitate the development of new competences for the professional growth of the sector workers.

We build bridges between companies and schools in order to attract talent to the sector.

  • NETWORKING

We want to transform reality, turn difficulties into opportunities and make dreams of the companies that trust us come true. We want to grow and improve the sector.

To make this possible, we promote business meetings and enriching professional relationships. We actively work to create business between companies that belong to the cluster.
