Bright, the German trade show for streetwear, sneakers, skateboarding and fashion, has rescheduled its winter date. Formerly planned for Jan. 30-31, the show will now run from Jan. 16-17, 2010. With this earlier date, the show in Frankfurt am Main will be the kick-off event for Germany’s fashion showcases. Bread & butter, Premium, Berlin Fashion Week and Jam will take place a week later on Jan. 20-22. “95% of our exhibitors do agree with this early date as collections are already ready in the beginning of January,” explained Marci Aslim, head of Bright. “Half of the brands are busy with the order before Bright will take place.” As usual the location will be the former police station. And as the upcoming edition will also be its 10th anniversary, Bright has planned several special events for January to celebrate its 10th year. One highlight will be a jubilee and birthday party, while others will include exhibitions and contests.
