Seeking New Italian Fashion at the 2019 MIPEL 116 Show

This fall, POPPI Italian Leather will travel to Italy to attend 2019 fashion shows including the MIPEL Bag and Shoe Show at the beautiful Fiera Milano-Rho Exhibition Centre in Milan. This is the 116th MIPEL show, and we are excited to discover iconic, innovative, and unique premiering Italian fashion trends.


The MIPEL show exhibits 300 industry-leading brands of authentic Italian bags and footwear. Over 10,000 visitors from across the globe will attend the MIPEL show, and we will be joining them to find new makers, styles, and movements in the Italian fashion world. We’ll bring back some of the elegance, quality, and rich tradition of Milan vogue to add into our own collection of veg tan leather bags, Italian apparel, and other uniquely Italian goods.


The 2019 MIPEL show runs September 15th through 18th at pavilion 10 in the exhibition center. The show is supported by the Italian Trade Agency, an organization working with the Ministry for Economic Development to support fair, ethical trade of authentic Italian goods, including the products made using the centuries-old tradition of veg tan leather.


The exhibitors attending the MIPEL show include Gianni Conti, Giudi, and Ripani, in addition to hundreds of other creators of quality products. Our goal in joining other visitors of MIPEL is to both seek out new Italian fashions and to form new connections with shared interest in supporting the history of true Italian couture traditions.


This year’s MIPEL show will feature a central display of “Scenario” on a live stage throughout the exhibition. These Scenarios are the most important part of the MIPEL show. Not only do they showcase the most cutting-edge creators of style and quality, they also promote the work of emerging, unique brands. The show’s signature Scenario project features an exposé of the long history of Italian fashion and leather work, its role in the contemporary fashion world, and its place as an art form for generations of Italian creators.


An online gallery of the previous year’s MIPEL show displays just a taste of the quality and unparalleled beauty of brands that will attend this year and the unique trends that we will bring back to our own collection. Events throughout the exhibition will provide visitors with new information about the creation process, upcoming trends, industry patterns, and international research.
