Igedo Company

Igedo Company terminates partnership with and in Fashion Net Düsseldorf e.V.

At the end of 2020, the Igedo Company discontinued its support of Fashion Net Düsseldorf e.V.. In recent weeks and months, the commitment of Fashion Net Düsseldorf e.V. had been too one-sided in favour of the major showroom operators, and too little attention was paid to the overall needs of the fashion location Düsseldorf. The interests of the two trade fair companies at the location were taken into account less and less and finally not at all. Consequently, it comes as no surprise that the partnership with and in Fashion Net Düsseldorf e.V. ends after more than ten years for the Igedo Company.

A sign of consistency from Düsseldorf

At the end of January 2021, Düsseldorf will once again prove itself as a firmly established destination for international fashion orders: Gallery FASHION & Shoes, with the Fashion Bridge to Supreme Women & Men, is planning to hold its regular order event as scheduled.

“Here at Igedo we are optimistic that responsibly organised order events will be possible again from the end of January 2021. Like in March and September 2020, Gallery FASHION & Shoes obviously guarantees the strictest adherence to all official regulations and guidelines, while also ensuring a positive atmosphere for people to finally meet up in. As a partner of the industry, it is incredibly important to us to show consistency and to also continue offering a physical platform – and the Areal Böhler in Düsseldorf provides the best conditions for that.”
