Gallery with a new look
In order to present themselves in a fresher and more contemporary way, the Gallery order fairs in Düsseldorf are getting a facelift: Gallery Fashion & Shoes will be renamed Fashn Rooms and runs from January 27-31, 2022, while Gallery Shoes & Fashion will get a new look as Shoes Düsseldorf from the upcoming edition from March 6-8, 2022.
At Fashn Rooms, the previous showroom concept with agencies and exhibitors of fashionable fashion, shoes & accessories will be joined by Core, a selection of authentic and crafted brands predominantly from the men’s denim, sportswear, contemporary and outdoor segments, who had previously positioned themselves at Berlin's Selvedge Run: "The old Selvedge Run community has found a new location in Düsseldorf in the Fashn Rooms and is entering the next round in cooperation with the IGEDO Company," says Shane Brandenburg, co-founder and former product manager of Selvedge Run.
At the newly named Shoes Düsseldorf, visitors can expect an informative supporting program in addition to international shoe trend collections. This includes order information and trend forecasts as well as analyses, facts and figures from the HDS|L press conference.
