Moda, the largest trade fashion event for the UK, welcomes new additions to Moda Accessories on 16-18th February at Birmingham NEC. Now in its 12th year, the show goes from strength to strength attracting new ranges every season - and accessories are no exception.
Silvia Collins, event manager for Moda Accessories, says of this season’s line-up, “We always have a fantastic variety of high-quality brands at the show, but this season has seen even more interest from some exciting new collections.”
One of the most popular newcomers has to be the ever colourful Zandra Rhodes Handbags, whose eclectic mix of bestsellers together with inspiring new pieces will make its show debut this February. The collection boasts its very first leather range and designs feature everything from dandelion, rose and stripe print clutches to a colourful mix of leather handbags and rucksacks; all finished with tasteful touches of gold trim, tassels and detailed stitching, which are the recognisable trademarks of this favoured designer.
Meanwhile, versatile jewellery label MelanO will participate at Moda for the first time. The unique line of concept jewellery allows the wearer to alter their look daily, with interchangeable gemstone, pearl and crystal settings across a range of rings, pendants and earrings.
Chris Hughes from MelanO says, “Many women are ‘mood dressers’ and what better way to create and convey a variety of looks than through beautifully crafted pieces that may be interchanged, stacked, twisted and mixed in so many ways?”
Another new addition is ID Hats, which will showcase a range of styles including cloche, beret, trilby and knit, made with an assortment of fine millinery threads such as cashmere, velvet, fur and cotton twill. Exceptional collections from Owen Barry, Alexander Thurlow, JK Henderson, Java Art, Peach Accessories, Lovett & Co and Miss Milly are among the mix of newcomers this February.
Moda Accessories is a must-stop destination for retailers seeking a point of difference this season. With over a hundred collections, there’s more diversity than ever for a promising A/W 2014.
