FN Platform is coming to New York.
UBM Fashion Group, the organizer of trade shows that include MAGIC, Coterie, Project and Stitch, has announced the launch of FN Platform NYC. The debut show will take place in February 2017 and run bi-annually during Coterie NYC at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The show will also run alongside additional shows under the UBM umbrella, including Stitch, Moda, Edit and Accessories the Show, offering a head-to-toe buying experience.
In addition to the launch of FN Platform NYC, Sole Commerce will further elevate its show through a highly edited selection of brands for entry. A juried event with attention to design, quality and price point, Sole Commerce will shift its focus to brands in the luxury market and will sit alongside accessories at the center of the Coterie show floor.
“Each year, the show has continued to thrive, and these additions will bring continued freshness and opportunity for both sides of the aisle,” said Leslie Gallin, president of footwear for UBM Fashion Group. “Footwear is a critical part of the fashion landscape. The East Coast launch will offer a one-stop shopping experience while creating a welcoming interest for new brands and retailers from all over the world.”
