Moda will launch neighbourhoods for their 2020 show, which will replace sectors with neighbourhoods on the floorplan.
Each neighbourhood providing a space for each section of the industry and hosting a line-up of micro-communities for footwear, accessories and womenswear labels alongside footwear suppliers and manufacturers.
Event Director of Moda, Adam Gough, said: “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.”
