The Latin American Fashion Summit is a multiplatform created by entrepreneurs Estefanía Lacayo and Samantha Tams with the mission of elevating and enriching the Latin American fashion and design industry, aiming to make it more relevant than ever. It all began when they noticed the general lack of opportunities within the region that was receiving a growing interest. A project that once started exclusively as an annual conference that brought together a group of globally respected industry-related experts in 2018 is now much more than that.
LAFS is a powerful community, a multifaceted digital platform that showcases the Latin American talent to the world and a leading content creator that provides opportunities for emerging designers and fashion entrepreneurs by partnering with important design academies, wholesale platforms and hosting its own contest.
Recently, LAFS created TRIBU, a new networking platform whose mission is to revolutionize the way in which the fashion industry connects.
