As more retailers buy closer to season, the need for immediate product is greater than ever. The Immediate Shoe Wall, a new concept by FFANY, aims to streamline the search for at-once product by presenting immediate samples from exhibiting brands in one central spot at the Hilton.
Consider the wall your visual shopping guide for fashion that can sell in your store sooner than later!
Book to secure your hotel stay well ahead of time. FFANY has negotiated exclusive hotel rates and amenities when you book through FFANY.ORG. The FFANY travel desk, powered by Onpeak, has benefits such as the lower rates, “book now, pay later” and easy group bookings.
