Mode Suisse is the name of the Fashion Week in Switzerland, a small country between Germany, France and Italy (if you didn´t know it). With a lot of potencial buyers, this year was the 10th Edition which started on September 1st and finished 25th September with Pop-Up Stores around Zurich.
Their Idea is:
"That is an industry platform promoting collaboration between fashion designers and schools, the textile industry, retail market, media and other fashion-related industry players. Semi-annual events staged in Geneva and Zurich are targeted primarily at an expert audience, but also at amateur fashion lovers. In addition, Mode Suisse is an adviser to Swiss designers and a door-opener for appearances at international fashion weeks and events".
What you will find?
Shows, showrooms, panel discussions, Pop-Up Stores, Exhibitions.
As a special feature for this year's edition, they chose a model with down syndrome. The theme was "Mode for All".
