With extensive experience in the booming global fashion industry, DHL Express continues delivering fashion to the world through this long standing partnership.
Fashion is the very definition of a fast paced industry, with lead times, accuracy and reliability all of critical importance. DHL Express is the logistics company of choice for fashion, offering unparalleled industry insight, excellent customer service, and providing the fastest and most reliable logistics solutions for the Australian fashion industry.
Since 2007, DHL Express has provided the timely response, excellent quality and convenient delivery the local industry demands, especially in this era of multiple sales channels and online retailing.
In 2010, DHL Express launched its now famed DHL Fashion Export Scholarship to further support and nurture emerging Australian designers. The scholarship was born to offer local fashion designers support to grow their export business and achieve international success.
Gary Edstein, CEO and Senior Vice President at DHL Express Oceania, said: “DHL Express has enjoyed a long standing partnership with Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, and we are delighted to have nurtured some of Australia’s brightest talents in the past. We are proud to have helped them to further propel their business locally and to overseas markets.”
Gary added: “We want companies to view DHL Express as an extension of their business and to form a trusted partnership – when you grow, we grow with you.”
Previous recipients of the DHL Fashion Export Scholarship have included Bec & Bridge, We are Handsome, KHALO, Haryono Setiadi, BY JOHNNY. and Christopher Esber. All winners received international freight to boost their label’s international presence along with a mentorship to help launch their burgeoning label on the international stage. Each one was able to successfully utilise the scholarship prize to catapult their business overseas.
This year, DHL Express continues to support emerging Australian designers through its ‘Launch a Label to the World Stage’ competition. The winning Australian label will have the opportunity to attend Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, meet and network with IMG fashion experts, and experience extensive global brand exposure on DHL’s digital channels.
DHL continues to develop and deliver specific logistics solutions to meet the demanding needs of this incredibly dynamic sector. With an unmatched worldwide presence, DHL is poised to deliver optimised supply chains, reduced lead times along with easy access to brand new and emerging markets.
