Who’s Next shares expertise with the Trend Union team from Lidewij Edelkoort’s Studio in an innovative dynamic which aims to revive visitors’ journeys and their approach to retail. A dedicated area will promote a “signature” collection of ready-to-wear, accessories, and lifestyle products as well as merchandising and service solutions. Trend Union is committed to its process of enhancement and to boosting fashion by reinventing the consumer experience.
