MODA Birmingham - 23rd -25th February 2020
As Trade show season continues it will soon be the turn of the United Kingdom to play host. Later this month the British fashion industry will be making its way to the NEC Birmingham for the prestigious MODA exhibition where one of the best international wholesale apparel trade shows will be taking place. Set in the heart of Birmingham’s busy Industrial hub, the NEC has hosted a variety of different exhibitions over several decades, and seems a natural choice for this enormous trade show each season which showcases over 400 brands.
MODA assembles an impressive line up of womenswear & accessories from around the world and, as home to the UK’s National Footwear Show, MODA boasts the country's largest collection of footwear brands all under one roof. There is something to interest every buyer with dedicated sectors for ethical fashion, premium brands, contemporary ready to wear collections and a clear edit of diffusion lines.
Emerging brands that will be visiting MODA this season include GMBH, Envy, Blowfish Malibu, Cherry Blossom, Down to Earth, Max and Ellie, Vanilla Moon, Fly London and the Air by Caprice footwear collection. Lingerie purveyor Palm Underwear will exhibit along with Grace jewellery and specialist labels Gill Knitwear and Jorli Knitwear. Plus, every aspect of the wholesale stock you may need is covered with a great mix of established brands, with the likes of Birkenstock, Dunlop, Gant, Levis, Patrick shoes, Ravel & Start-Rite showcasing their latest designs.
Apart from the brands exhibition space, the MODA Seminar programme offers an expansive range of exclusive content from the leading experts in retail & fashion, exploring all the key issues facing the industry at the moment, from sustainability to equipping your brand with a suitable social media strategy. As expected there will also be several seminars focusing on trend predictions, an abundance of catwalk shows, and a styling session with stylist Beth Goodrham to help sharpen your eye on how to present your businesses wears.
Whether you're planning to restock your wholesale fashion selection, research new brands, or learn from the industry's most influential speakers, the Moda Birmingham Fashion Trade Show is a great addition to your trade calendar. But if you're not able to make it this year, don't forget that TradeGala is a great low cost alternative to trade fairs allowing you to browse a multitude of whole sale brands all in one place
