Paolo Costanzo

IFDC Italy Country Manager


Based in Milan, Italy Paolo Costanzo is Country manager of IFDC Italy, an Italian Entity established to develop the region’s Islamic fashion and design industry.
The fashion industry is changing deeply and the growing Muslim population gives the landscape a chance for improvement as we forge ahead with revolutionary offerings between producers and consumers. The domain of a brand is dependent on the end user; and the modest fashion industry offers a great alternative to women everywhere who are intrigued by grace, beauty, and elegance. With his background in fashion commerce and his relationships in the Milan fashio/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/paolo.jpgn scene with designers and key players, Paolo has focused plans for IFDC Italy and support IFDC Global that will realize a remarkable outcome for the industry in general. He is a financial advisor and author of several publications on corporate governance, and in his view companies have a social function. For this reason he thinks the fashion industry, particularly the development of modest fashion, can contribute to create a bridge between different cultures.
Moreover, as Paolo often sees raw talent in the industry, talent that has potential but requires schooling and development, IFDC Italy is working toward creating a platform that will provide such opportunities of development and becoming more seasoned with a keen focus on ethics and sustainability.
Paolo was featured in Thomson Reuters Global Islamic Economy Report 2015/16 edition, and has been a speaker at modest fashion weeks and events.
