Stockholm Shoe House has grown organically and since its founding in 2009 it has been expanded in five stages to provide space for strong representatives from Sweden and the world.
Sneaker lovers sometimes need a dressed shoe, and those who walk in heels sometimes walk in the woods! Whether you are looking for something unique or want to see the news from the most well-known brands, you’ve come to the right place. Look at the new models and colors in peace and quiet, figure out what worked best for others with your suppliers and colleagues in the industry, maybe a new segment or an old favorite with new details may be what the customer longs for without yet knowing about it?
Welcome to 4200 square meters and 55 showrooms that are open all year round for booked meetings and for events.
In addition, buying days are arranged in Varberg twice a year.
Textile & production
Stockholm Fashion District includes textiles and accessories, such as buttons, zippers, labels and much more, for designers and buyer’s production. Nordic Fabric Fair (previous Preview Fabric & Accessories) is something as unique as an international, but graspable, creative textile fair in Scandinavia. For many designers, the new season begins as much here as at the sketch table. Within the walls of this fair, there is a great deal of knowledge among the experts in textile materials and accessories who participate. Here, the new textile collections are presented before the international fairs. We also host pop-up days, such as Textile Day, where representatives of international weaving mills and factories meet Scandinavian designers.
Fashion Week Trade
with showrooms & guest brands
Twice a year in February and August, Fashion Week Trade is arranged at Stockholm Fashion District and online. We present an exciting program based on a theme, related to the business intelligence we gather, and opens the doors to all showrooms and presents fantastic guest exhibitors. Our focus is to be a value-creating and interesting meeting place for efficient business. You get new knowledge, new contacts and inspiration as a bonus.
Encouragement for Action
Encouragement for Action was established in 2018 by Stockholm Fashion District as an encouragement prize and an exhibition with the aim to encourage sustainability and development in the fashion industry. Stockholm Fashion District always works inclusively and together with a renowned jury, important organizations and stakeholders in our network, we award selected companies and brands a recognition for an achievement that can be a product, a project or equivalent. The award should be seen as an encouragement to continue on the paved path and as inspiration for others to continue their sustainability journey. In this way, Stockholm Fashion District contributes to creating awareness of important ideas within sustainability in our industry.
Philip Warkander, senior lecturer in fashion science at Lund University, is chairman of the ethics council and author of the foreword that frames what sustainability in the fashion industry means.
A curated exhibition of the nominees and previous winners connected to the 17 global sustainability goals is presented in connection with the prize ceremony and continues with participation in other settings, such as at World Trade Day and Preview Fabrics & Accessories on previous occasions.
All industries need a business lab for growing companies. A lab where young companies can meet reality, where they are given an opportunity to build experience for future challenges and show their unique design. That is why we have created Nordic Lab.
During Nordic Lab, we gather experts with strong roots in the fashion industry or in their respective field to help participating brands to add knowledge and experience to their company. Experience can then help them reinforce their brand story, values and expression. Here, new brands and designers can interact with stores, broaden their network of buyers and build relationships with other brands, agents and sales organizations. Our goal is to create a platform where we can contribute to building global fashion brands from the Nordic region for the future.
Nordic Lab is an annual event in February each year at Stockholm Fashion District. Our aim is that the participants will continue to benefit from the network and use their new knowledge throughout the coming year.
Stockholm Fashion District is founded and run by the Association of Trade Partners Sweden. Trade Partners Sweden works to create the right conditions for our members to be successful. We do this by actively participating and influencing the development within our members’ industries. Major efforts are also being made in the legal field to protect free trade and thereby improve the business opportunities for agents, distributors, importers and others who run their businesses in an international environment.
Under the roof of Trade Partners Sweden and at Stockholm Fashion District, several industry-focused networking groups gather to discuss current and specific issues in these important forums. Do you want to join the group for fashion, shoes, textiles, interior design, underwear and bags? Store owners and buyers are welcome to Buyers Club. Feel free to contact us and we will tell you more!
Seminars & education
Stockholm Fashion District help promote further education and our seminars are aimed at companies with growth potential in the design and fashion industry. You can be active in retail or e-tail, within a design company, as a designer, agent or distributor, marketing manager, salesman or CEO. Through close collaboration with guest lecturers and experts in areas identified by the fashion industry as important, we ensure that Swedish design and fashion companies have exclusive access to unique expertise, knowledge that otherwise require years of practical experience or a budget that only large companies can match. In this way, a positive industry development and strong national growth is promoted. The Swedish design and fashion industry is taking another step forward towards becoming the world’s sharpest entrepreneurs.
