BOUTIQUE by Chic
3rd – 5th October 2010
The Only National UK Accessories and Footwear Event
Timed Directly After GDS, Mipel / Micam.
Boutique by Chic is the totally unique buying experience that was conceived for fashion
accessory and footwear brands / buyers. The key difference is the timing, which allows buyers
the ONLY UK opportunity to see and buy FINALISED collections directly after their launch at the
major European shows in Paris, Milan and Dusseldorf.
Why Buy Finalised Collections?
It is important to realise that the clothing industry has always launched the forthcoming season
much earlier than footwear and accessory manufacturers. Therefore most European brands will
keep back their hottest styles for launch at the key European fairs, many of the early styles and
colours will never be manufactured if they have not sold well at the preview fairs, and quite often
the newest and best selling trends evolve directly before the major trade events!
In conclusion, buying finalised collections means not missing the best styles, avoiding wasted
budgeted-spend and short deliveries. Boutique gives you this advantage without the cost of
travelling all over Europe whilst having the pick of the best brands available whilst still ensuring
What’s New This season?
This season’s Boutique show promises more big European brands that cannot be seen at any
other UK show, lots of exciting new emerging brands and of course all the most important
accessory and footwear brands from the UK and beyond.
UK exclusives include Texier, one of France’s most acclaimed and directional brands, HJ De Rooj
from The Netherlands offering exceptional quality and value, Greenland from Germany offering
hip unisex lifestyle collections with green credentials and the UK launch of India’s new super
If you buy footwear and fashion accessories and haven’t been to Boutique by Chic before, this is
an event that shouldn’t be missed. The main focus is of course the fantastic brands which it
attracts from all over the world, but the organisers have spared no expense to create the most
lavish buying environment imaginable, and all the buyers I have spoken to report that it is not
only essential, but also an enjoyable experience.
Each visitor is welcomed with champagne, cocktails and blinis served by male and female hosts
who definitely cause a stir (and we are told that this season will surpass all others!) and there is an
overwhelming sense of style, fun and calmness which will not be found at any other show.
The brands showing are very carefully selected by the Boutique team for their individuality and
style at every price point. Over 70% will be from outside the UK with a focus on Italy, France, and
Spain. The majority of them do not show at any other UK show so it is a wonderful opportunity to
offer your customers something very different to your competitors.
