Moda, the heart of the UK’s fashion industry, has launched new Neighbourhoods to build on the show’s strong sense of community. For the February 2020 show, taking place on the 23rd – 25th February at the NEC Birmingham, Moda’s AW20 floorplan replaces sectors with neighbourhoods, providing a space for each facet of the industry and hosting a line-up of micro-communities for the most exciting footwear, accessories and womenswear labels alongside footwear suppliers and manufacturers from around the world.
Adam Gough, Event Director of Moda says: “When it came to brainstorming our 2020 theme and direction, the first thing that sprung to mind was community. With a new decade approaching, we wanted to bring our focus back to the faces behind the brands, collections, stores and build on their stories. The new Neighbourhoods will reflect that community and our Moda manifesto which positions fashion as an outlet of self-expression and a sense of belonging – a community of individuals collaborating, innovating and inspiring one another.”
The Moda Woman Neighbourhood
Moda Woman has become a key platform in the buying calendar, providing a hub for womenswear buyers and brands to meet, network and discover. The Moda Woman neighbourhood will host everything from occasion-wear to everyday diffusion lines.
The Moda Accessories Neighbourhood
An outfit isn’t complete without the right accessories, and a community isn’t complete without a few neighbourhoods. Sitting alongside Moda Woman, Moda Accessories brings everything together with UK and international brands offering an option for every buyer.
The Moda Footwear Neighbourhood
AKA, the National Footwear Show. Hosting the largest line-up of men’s, women’s and children’s footwear collections in the UK, Moda Footwear is the place to meet some of the biggest names in the sector. Specialist footwear buyers and brands from the UK and around the world unite the industry at a must-attend meeting place, facilitating business and forging lasting relationships. Within the neighbourhood, there will be the dedicated Little Soles space for kid’s footwear, and a Men’s Boutique highlighting the premium offerings in men’s footwear.
The Moda Footwear Sourcing Neighbourhood
Celebrating its official launch in 2020, Moda Footwear Sourcing brings the entire footwear supply chain under one roof.
Join Moda at its new home, Halls 6, 7 & 8 of NEC Birmingham on 23rd – 25th February 2020.
