News from the individual zoneS


The CONTEMPORARY ZONE is showing a wide range of collections and now stretches over four different halls, some of which have a new segmentation: the ›Halle am Wasserturm‹ and the ›Alte Schmiedehallen‹ will be home to the same zones as usual and the ›Blankstahlhalle‹ is occupied with the CONTEMPORARY ZONE only, and also the ›Edelstahlhalle‹, which was previously used for the KIDS’ exhibitors. Represented in the ›Halle am Wasserturm‹, for example, are new exhibitors such as Stefano Gamba from Italy. Tamaris Bags is exhibiting in the ›Alte Schmiedehallen‹, while new brands like Irregular Choice from the UK and Hey Dude from Italy can be found in the ›Edelstahlhalle‹.

Cinque can be found in the ›Halle am Wasserturm‹ once again. A brand that, alongside other selected brands, will be showcasing its complete looks in the ‘Fashion Lifestyle-Show’ in the Fashion-Lifestyle-Corner of the ›Kaltstahlhalle‹. Along with Clarks Shoes, Dutch brand Frankie4, which is taking part in the new ‘Gallery SHOES Selected-Show’, can be found in the ›Blankstahlhalle‹. Other brands featuring in the ‘Gallery SHOES Selected-Show’ are Emily & Noah from Germany and Bruno Premi from Italy. Both are exhibiting in the ›Alte Schmiedehallen‹. Returning exhibitors include Marian from Spain in the ›Blankstahlhalle‹. In the ›Edelstahlhalle‹ buyers will be able to browse brands such as Edel Fashion from the Netherlands.



The ›Alte Federnfabrik‹, the home of the comfort shoe brands, is inviting visitors in through a new, separate entrance, Entrance II with its own catering zone. Returning exhibitors who are also participating in the ‘Gallery SHOES Selected-Show’ are Berkemann and BOnova from Germany, Fidelio and Giesswein from Austria and Spanish brand PieSanto.

New brands like Leguano from Germany, Magical Shoes from Poland and Sota from Portugal will be exhibiting for the first time at the Areal Böhler in Düsseldorf.



The new light and airy ›Rohstahlhalle‹ is dedicated exclusively to the KIDS’ zone. Returning exhibitors include Naturino from Italy, Bisgaard from Portugal, Develab from the Netherlands, Kavat from Sweden and the Italian brands Melania, Momino and Ocra. New additions include Acebos from Spain, Apepazza from Italy and US brand Blauer.



From now on, half of the ›Alte Schmiedehallen‹ will be taken up by the URBAN zone. Sustainability plays a key role for Spanish brand Jonny’s Vegan, a vegan eco collection made of recycled PET bottles in Europe, and Go Green by John W. Shoes. The returning exhibitors include Apple of Eden, whose new collection is also part of the ‘Gallery SHOES Selected-Show’, and Hobo Shoes: both from Portugal. Also taking part: Blundstone from Australia and the beach styles by Havaianas from Brazil. Jeffrey Campbell is coming from the USA.

Spanish brand Ecoalf is synonymous with shoes and fashion made from natural resources and recycled materials of the highest quality. In the ‘Fashion Lifestyle-Show’ the head-to-toe outfits will also be shown at their own trade fair booth. Sheme Shoes from Germany is taking advantage of the opportunity to be represented twice: with their own trade fair booth and by participating in the ‘Fashion Lifestyle-Show’ at Gallery SHOES. New exhibitor Ellen Truijen will be bringing its handmade bags and accessories from the Netherlands. And represented once again is Fred de la Bretoniere from the Netherlands.
