Industry insiders share their opinions.
Eddie Mullins managing director of menswear indie Fitzgerald Menswear in Cork, Ireland.
“I come to Moda for two reasons. Firstly to preview the collections from some of the brands that I have meetings set-up with in Dublin and secondly to hopefully pick up one or two new brands.
“It is always worth me coming to Moda as the menswear area has grown over the last few seasons and in the past I have picked up brands that have done very well for me in store.
The owner of one women’s occasionwear indie said:
“All of the brands I buy from regularly show at Moda so I always come here to see the collections. I can usually get round everyone I need to see in two days and it is also good to look out for anything new that might work in my shop.”
