catwalkBirmingham-based trade show Moda has confirmed a strong line-up across each of its five product sectors. The UK’s most comprehensive fashion event will launch a/w 17 with a bolstered line-up for the new season and the development of each of its specific platforms targeting niche departments within the apparel trade.

Moda Footwear will see new arrivals across the entire spectrum from comfort leader Hotter to directional Italian sneaker label Candice Cooper. Along with quirky British designer Joe Browns, Italian family lifestyle brand Nero Giardini and new arrival from the Florida Group portfolio Vionic, inspiring new style ensures that footwear retailers can refresh their offer for autumn.

Also offering retailers the chance to discover new style inspiration, Edit will diversify across both menswear and womenswear for the new season. Introduced as a new concept last year, the Edit platform is a pared back area presenting niche and undiscovered labels within an entirely product-focused environment. The concept was so well-received within Moda Woman that it was rolled out to Moda Gent last season, and both sectors will once again host the popular platform for autumn.

Confirmed exhibitors within Edit include Arc Minute, CuffsCollars, Peter Werth, the Blue Shirt Company, Gresham Blake and Surf Perimeters for Moda Gent, and Fee G and Olvanhill for Moda Woman.

For Moda Accessories meanwhile, this February will see the show return to its new prominent layout for the third season. Situated alongside the catwalk, Adorned will once again showcase the sector’s contemporary and luxurious collections within a stylish environment. Elsewhere in the wider Moda Accessories exhibition, new arrivals will include Silvarrie Walkway and Extremities, while returning favourites include Eliza Gracious, Accessories by Park Lane, Peace of Mind, Suzanne Bettley, Gaby and Boardman.
