Managing Director IGEDO Company/Project Director
With a total of 800 international brands from 20 countries, Gallery FASHION is reporting continued growth, especially when it comes to its SHOWROOM CONCEPT: spread over a total of meanwhile three halls, noteworthy agencies will be presenting around 380 premium brands, most of which are only exhibiting at the Areal Böhler and cannot be found in any other showroom in Düsseldorf.
Vibrant brand diversity with a whole host of newcomers! Scottish tradition since 1866: Alex Begg will be showcasing exquisite scarves, wraps and stoles made from angora, cashmere and silk by BEGG & CO. Feminine, minimal casualwear from Germany: LIV BERGEN. From Italy, MYTHS will be presenting stylish trousers for ladies and men, and RRD ROBERTO RICCI DESIGNS will be showcasing outerwear for windsurfing and kiteboarding. With their luxury winter jackets, parkas and anoraks, NOBIS from Canada is awakening our wanderlust. Returning exhibitors from Italy include: CIRCOLO 1901, DOO WOP CLOTHING and MANUEL RITZ. Returning from France are MAJESTIC FILATURES, from Denmark GRAUMANN DESIGN and from Germany 04651/A TRIP IN A BAG. Concept store vibes in the SHOWROOM CONCEPT of the ‘Kaltstahlhalle’: here you will find products to complement the fashion on show, such as exclusive perfumes and home fragrances by ACQUA DELLE LANGHE – a homage to the Italian vineyard landscape that was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Italian cosmetics by SCAGLIETTI promise well-being for the body and mind and the various fragrances by AQUA DOS AZORES from Portugal are “essentially an olfactory travel diary”. Dramatic interior and shop design with contemporary luxury furniture will be on show by SPLENDOR SCARLET.
New content and even more depth will be provided by well-founded side events. The media events include a panel discussion moderated by Stephan Huber, the editor-in-chief of Style in Progress, entitled ‘It’s the consumer, stupid!’ with renowned guests from the industry who will be talking about the challenges of a market reality defined by digitalisation and globalisation. At ‘’TM in Dialogue’ noteworthy industry experts will be on hand to provide individual retail advice. For an overview of what to order, the Gallery FASHION TRENDVIEW with trend expert Karolina Landowski and Igedo Fashion Director Alexander Radermacher will provide a summary of the most important looks for autumn/winter 2020/21. Plus, there will also be talks by Scalerion, Fashion Cloud and VDMD, rounded off by a Trendzone for store design.
MATCHMAKING ON THE BUS
As well as a larger delegation from the Netherlands, NRW.International will also be welcoming additional key international players from the fashion industry (designers, producers, brands, labels etc.) to the fashion metropolis Düsseldorf.
