Retro casual wear label Gola Classics makes its debut at Moda Platform.Returning to Moda after an absence is quality German label Campione and international label Pierre Cardin.

De Montfort University offers the only single Honours Footwear Design course in the UK, with many of its graduates going on to work for leading companies including Paul Smith, Diesel, Reebok, Office and Karen Millen. Moda will give visitors the opportunity to view the creations of these six footwear designers of the future.

A brand new look for the Moda Catwalk sees two shows running throughout the three days, with Moda's womenswear and menswear show will alternate with the key swimwear looks from Moda Beach.
