Frequently Asked Questions


I'm not sure what you do, please explain

IFAB is an independently run industry body, with an advisory board and community. Our board members provide mentorship to startups, and fashion businesses.  Our focus is on technology innovation, helping fashion businesses become digitally enabled. We do this by leaning on the community for information and resources, and alternatively via specialist consulting services.

Engagement, cost & payment

Our advisory board members run their own businesses independently, are part of a company or institution, which is aligned to our collective effort of helping the industry and fashion businesses innovate. 
IFAB is not connected to a corporate or non-profit, it's a community-led industry body and business enquiries are matched to the most suitable and experienced member to assist where possible.
Price and payment is guided by the relevant advisory board member and their business terms and conditions.  

There is no fee to join the IFAB Slack community, there's a social commitment that value shared is value gained.  Please refer to our community guidelines for more information.

IFAB memberships are available for an annual fee, and provide access to in-depth resources and one-on-one mentor sessions.
