What’s new @ Gallery? The grand opening of the summer 2018 edition of Gallery, taking place from 22 – 24 July 2017 in Düsseldorf, is just around the corner. In the industrial setting of the Areal Böhler venue, around 800 international brands will be completing the international fashion tradeshow’s impressive portfolio.
As well as familiar faces like Trine Kryger Simonsen, Lauren Moshi and Isabell de Pedro in the CONTEMPORARY segment, Brasi & Brasi, Kikko and Nikky Stein will be showcasing their collections in the ACCESSORIES area and John Charles, Mascara, Fashion New York and Sonia Peña will be exhibiting in the Gallery EVENING & OCCASION segment. The strong growth, especially among PREMIUM brands, and also the AGENCIES who will be making use of the showroom concept for the extended ordering period at the tradeshow venue, is confirmation of the international order platform’s growing success and significance.
Here’s a detailed overview of Gallery’s different segments: PREMIUM, AGENCIES, CONTEMPORARY, ACCESSORIES and Gallery EVENING & OCCASION
With more than 20 agencies, a plus of 40%, the showroom concept is already proving popular. “The positive feedback and validation we are receiving show the importance of the concept we are offering in Düsseldorf, which has meanwhile become a real USP for Gallery. The opportunity to use the location as an ordering base for up to 10 days on either side of the tradeshow dates is a response to the demand on us as tradeshow organisers to offer market-oriented concepts,” explains Ulrike Kähler, Project Director of Gallery & Gallery SHOES. In addition to the ›Halle am Wasserturm‹ and parts of the ›Alte Schmiedehallen‹, in which CONTEMPORARY & ACCESSORIES is now also located, the area at the upcoming edition has been extended by 1000 m² with the new addition of the ›Alte Kesselhaus‹.
