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.
