The AFC has spent the last 12 months working hard on revitalising the AFC website, membership program and the AFC Directory (formerly TFIA Directory). With a renewed and evolved focus, we are very excited to share with you that the new AFC Membership Program is now live!
The AFC Membership Program is here to help you grow your business, connect with a professional network, stay informed and contribute to the future of a sustainable and innovative fashion & textile industry. By becoming a member, you will be joining the peak body for the Australian Fashion and Textile Industry.
After a tumultuous 2020, the AFC spent time identifying the gaps and opportunities within the Australian Fashion & Textile Industry. By doing so we have developed a stronger, and more connected support network to help benefit our members.
As a member, you will have access to a number of exciting new benefits, including:
- AFC Toolkits - Access AFC member-only resources, toolkits and webinar recordings in an open source platform. Discover best practice advice across sustainability and responsible practice, export, innovation, business essentials and more.
- Member Perks - Access exclusive membership benefits offered by our trusted Affiliate Partner network. These benefits include complimentary sessions, reduced rate services, and discounted tickets to select industry and partner events.
- Support Indigenous Fashion & Textiles - Contribute to the AFC’s newly created Indigenous Fashion Fund (IFF). 5% of all membership fees will be accrued to the IFF and will be allocated by the AFC’s Board of Directors to selected Indigenous fashion & textile organisations.
- Premium AFC Directory Listing - The AFC Directory allows industry to search Australia's largest database of designers, suppliers & manufacturers. Members are highlighted as a premium listing, allowing you to be more easily discovered by your peers and industry.
We look forward to helping our community grow and for you to join us on this new, exciting chapter of the AFC.
