February 17, 2017

It is only February and we have already got three fairs under our belt in Florence (Pitti Uomo), Berlin (Seek) and London (Jacket Required) but this is the first time we have exhibited at the Nordic Shoe and Bag Fair in Sweden which is part of the Stockholm Fashion District.

Stockholm Fashion District is a generic name for all the fairs, events and showrooms within fashion in Nacka strand, Stockholm. This destination for the fashion industry in Sweden is created for designers and their teams, buyers and sellers of leading Swedish and international fashion brands in clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories and for exciting lecturers and experts.

We are very excited to be amongst some of Sweden and Scandinavia’s fashion elite and to be flying the British flag for our brands Solovair and NPS.
