Sam Edelman, Uri Minkoff And More Attend FN Platform

From the Las Vegas Convention Center to Mandalay Bay, designers, executives and retailers gathered all over Sin City for FN Platform last week.

And at night, FN teamed with FN Platform and NPD Group to host a bash at Hyde Bellagio in honor of Two Ten Footwear Foundation’s 75th anniversary.

Singer Taylor Dayne performed some of her ’80s hits at the trades show’s opening-night party. Later that evening, guests attended Lacoste and Two Ten’s rooftop party, which featured the ultimate Vegas view from Ghostbar at the Palms Casino Resort. Guests included Sonny Shar, Dave Grange, Isack Fadlon and many more footwear notables.

FN Platform hosted 1,600 footwear brands from more than 20 countries over three days.

On the show floor, brands debuted new lines for fall.

Modern Vintage CEO Rick Cytrynbaum unveiled Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s new shoe line. The collaboration features contemporary looks, from strappy sandals to sky-high pumps to ’70s-inspired boots. “This is going to change the celebrity market. Every retailer who sees the product wants to buy it,” said Cytrynbaum.

Speaking of the celebrity market, FN’s women’s editor, Kristen Henning, hosted a panel with Bob Goldman, founder and CEO of Chinese Laundry, and Joe Ouaknine, founder and CEO of Titan Industries, to discuss celebrity partnerships.
