Streetwear trade show Bread & Butter Barcelona has moved its January dates back by one week in 2009.
The autumn 09 edition of the exhibition will take place on January 21-23, while the spring 10 edition will be in line with this year’s dates on July 1-3.
Bread & Butter managing director Karl-Heinz Müller said the dates had to be pushed back to allow the show to stick to its Wednesday through Friday scheduling.
Müller said the date shift had been agreed with the organisers of the Florence menswear show Pitti Uomo and the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, the organisers of Milan’s Menswear Fashion Week.
He said: “This means the season starts as usual with Pitti Uomo, and one week later Bread & Butter is the international kick-off for urbanwear.”
Bread & Butter said it expected its new fabric show The Source, which runs alongside the main event, to double in size for January 2009.
