1,800 collections: GDS all geared up
Aug '09
Shoe and accessories trends for the coming season as well a concentrated range of communication and sectoral information are at the focus of the forthcoming GDS – International Event for Shoes & Accessories. From 11 to 13 September 765 exhibitors (correct as of 20 August 2009) from 31 countries will be presenting over 1,800 collections for the Spring/Summer 2010 season in the halls of Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre.

Visitors to GDS will find a very comprehensive market overview of progressive and classic premium brands, strong-selling street and sportswear through to design newcomers, brands with broad market acceptance and children's shoe collections. “GDS in September again features a wide range of exciting brands that no shoe shop can really do without,” explained GDS Director Kirstin Deutelmoser at the press conference in the run-up to the event. “We have been working very hard on this over the past few months. In view of the general economic climate the 7% drop in exhibitors, or 50 exhibiting firms, is also very moderate. And it is striking that this development primarily concerns the mid market segment. Strong premium and quality brands plus many new collections are continuing to focus on GDS for their sales and communication.”

The collections new to GDS in September for instance include:
Billi Bi, Tretorn, Radical Boot, Rizzo, (Urban Authentic), Go Green, Natalia Blanco, Otto Kern, Porsche Design, Xacata (Superior / Essential), Barrats 1890, Buday Shoes, Chibs, Eduardo G., Gino Bianchi, Künzli All'Tag, Mack James,Profession Bottier (Upper Style), Australia Luxe Collective, Coclico, Gourmet, Mysique, Peak Performance, Post & Co, Sebago, Stephane Kelian and Voile Blanche (White Cubes).

Furthermore, manufacturers like Carlafe with Eject Black, Norberto Costa with Vudu Shoes, Flip Flop with Flip Flop Murkudis and Tiggers with Tiggers Blue are launching new collections onto the market and will be presenting these for the first time at GDS.

“That manufacturers are bringing exciting innovations onto the market at times like these shows just how lively the shoe business is. There is always something to discover. A visit to GDS is worthwhile just to see these brands alone,” Kirstin Deutelmoser continues. “At the same time though GDS offers visitors a supporting programme which we have now developed further in content terms yet again. For instance, we have set up a central speakers' area dubbed the Speakers' Lounge where numerous talks on topical themes will be held on all three days of the fair.”

Extended Supporting Programme: Trend Concept and Speakers' Lounge
GDS prepares trends and specialist information in professional format for its customers like no other event of its kind. The fair's supporting programme is primarily aimed at gearing specialist retailers up for their ordering discussions and daily business and at providing them with new ideas and inspirations. The trend statements here are based on extensive analysis: for every new season round table discussions are held with renowned experts and new directions are mapped out. The new core themes, tendencies and trends in fashion are elaborated here in
