Over the last few years the Bright tradeshow in Frankfurt, Germany, has established itself as a force to be reckoned with. The show presents a tight range of brands from the worlds of streetwear, fashion, sneakers and boardsports alongside art shows, film screenings and nightlife. The upcoming winter show this weekend (24th and 25th January) will see 5,000 visitors perusing products from 300 brands, from streetwear pioneers like 10.Deep to specialist denim brands such as Denim Demon via innovative sneaker labels like Clae.

In addition Bright have also collaborated with Code magazine to present the ‘Off Schedule’ fashion show, featuring new collections from sneaker brands like Reebok and more high-end tailoring from Sopopular and OntFront. As if that wasn’t enough there’s also the Bright Bowl skate contest and shows from Fixed Gear London and Suburbs Fixed Gear Crew.
