My experiences and insights on day one of the trade fair…
My sweeties, as you probably all know by now, I’ve been living in Dusseldorf for about a year now. At first, it took me some time getting used to this place, but now, I wouldn’t wanna miss this lovely town by the Rhine river. And I’m so happy that this town also has a certain kind of fashion scene. Some showrooms, shows and trade fairs.
The Gallery trade fair* in Dusseldorf invited me this time to spend two days in an old industrial area where all the labels presented themselves. Really exciting, of course I wanted to be part of that, so on Saturday at lunchtime, Max and I took the car to jump into the masses and get to know Gallery…
Well, masses is not quite the right word, because we really had enough space to spend a relaxed day at the alte Schmiedehalle of the Areal Böhler. We had the chance to speak with all the labels in detail, get to know them and also look at the architectural perfection of the building in detail. What a building!
But back to the fashion: especially, the section “avant garde” was an area where we discovered lots of exciting, young labels, that attended Gallery for the first time, ever. It was so exciting to discover all the unusual designs, textures and fabrics, I loved it! So, if any blogger ever wonders what to do on a trade fair (after all, isn’t it actually for the buyers?), at Gallery, there is place for both. And I hope, through my pictures, you’ll get a good insight into the location and my favourite pieces of fashion.
So just let me say that Gallery really is worth a visit, if you take the time to actually go and talk to the labels, touch and look at the fashion and just in general, take your time to discover all the hidden gems. By the way, at the instagram-account of the Igedo Company, you can find some more inspiration from Gallery.
How do you guys like my pictures and the designs that I found especially exciting? Did you find something you really liked? I’m super excited to read your opinions!
