International fashion trade show Tranoï has appointed Simon Collins as creative advisor of a newly-created US advisory board for its New York edition, which will pursue to expand the show’s presence overseas.

Former dean of fashion at The New School’s Parson School of Design, Collins will support Tranoï on identifying and connecting emerging design talent with key industry decision makers, as well as scouting a group of members for the US advisory board to provide strategic input and direction.

The Tranoï fashion trade show takes place four times a year during Paris Fashion Week, and twice a year during New York market week.
