"Among friends and on-site – this is how I felt at ABC-Salon in february. Beside those who have joined the event for many years, this year, there were some curious first-time visitors too. Some brands already presented their collections for 2016 to gain feedback from their customers. Apart from that, I spoke to retailers who have come to ABC-Salon to get a first impression of the new collecitons and to prepare for their order for 2016. I could make use of the relaxed atmosphere for intense consultation and enjoyed this a lot. ABC-Salon might really advance to the status of an insiders´ tip.“ Sky Lange-Ford Graduate Designer
