Did You Know? 

Who’s Next has been continuously growing over the years. The past three years have been quite instrumental in what the trade fair is evolving into. It all started with the addition of IMPACT in 2019, which altogether opened a conversation about sustainability in fashion. Which are the brands doing good work in this field? What are the current biggest problems? What are possible solutions? This is the focus of the sub-show. Since then, there have been other additions like Traffic, which shines a light on innovative business development solutions for fashion brands and retailers. Most recent has been the addition of Bijorhca aimed at the jewellery sector.
