A lead and time-honoured fashion event in the UK
MODA UK follows world fashion trends from the virtuosos working in fashion today and curates an unforgettable experience that encompasses the entire value chain of apparel. The international trade fair features women's wear, accessories, and footwear from the highest pedigree. MODA UK first took to the stage back in 2002 and in those two decades has positioned itself as the chief cross-border sales platform on a major level. It’s also earned itself the title of UK's National Footwear Show, with its claim to fame being the largest collection of footwear brands under one roof in the entire country. What can visitors expect when they walk into the exhibition space? There is something for everyone – ethical fashion, footwear sourcing, contemporary ready-to-wear collections, premium brands, occasion wear and diffusion lines. Fashion brands benefit greatly from exposure at MODA UK, because of its many opportunities to hold meetings with potential buyers.

- “I do a lot of orders at speed networking, more than at my stand. Thank you for doing it. It is amazing,” – David Barber, Sales Director at Charles Birch Ltd, said;
- “We have been coming to Moda for a very long time. I think the speed networking is very good. We actually joined the session last year as well. It got even better this year. I met a mix of people and products. We had a great time!” – Steven John Bruce at William Bruce Footwear;
- “Moda is the key show for our fashion buy, we come every season. We’re part of The Club and really enjoyed the benefits including the convenience, and all the amenities the team offer. Added extras like the Speed Networking are fab, we met some great new brands, and we loved the Selfridges Retail Safari – it was a real eye opener to get insights into how it all works and the networking was really useful.” – Corinne Smith at Logues;
