Do you LOVE shoes? - FFANY has begun!

June 7-9, 2011 marks the Fashion Footwear Association of New York's Footwear Trade Show, where members of the shoe industy and press will descend upon the Hilton New York Hotel for all things footwear as well as the The annual FFANY Industry Party which is now soldout and will be held Tuesday, June 7, 6:30 – 9:00 pm at the fabulous Bryant Park!

As I already know from experience that my wifi device isn't going to play nicely there, look for tweets later this evening, and for blog post recaps as my schedule permits.

So now you know the real reason I'm playing Hookey from Internet Week, it's because I plan to spend this week in Shoe Paradise instead! So for all of you attending #IWNY, please take notes or send me links to your blog recaps, and I'll gladly send you or better still post here, pics of shoes for your shoe loving pleasure. (Days and Days of Shoe Porn! The only porn you can and should send over twitter!) ;-)


The Fashion Footwear Association of New York has been bringing footwear manufacturers and retailers, the industry players, together for thirty years. They are a not-for-profit trade association representing footwear manufacturers from around the world and are prominent members of the New York Fashion Community.

Their Mission:

FFANY’s mission is to promote and assist the common business interests of its members, who include over 300 footwear manufacturers, representing over 800 fashion footwear, accessory and related apparel brands.

The goal of their tradeshows, held in February, June, August and December, is to create one exciting marketplace in New York City, the fashion capital of the world. Here, exhibiting footwear manufacturers and attending retailers can efficiently buy, sell and develop business networks.

FFANY extends its mission by being committed to philanthropy and by "giving back" to its members and the footwear industry. Through the generous donations of its members companies and its vital partnership with QVC, our charitable event "FFANY Shoes on Sale" has sold more than one million pairs of shoes and has raised over $33 million for breast cancer research and education. FFANY has reached out to millions of women across America with an essential message about breast cancer awareness.

FFANY also supports scholarship programs and charitable organizations within the footwear industry, such as the Two Ten Footwear Foundation and Shoes that Fit. Who knew your love of shoes could also do so much good? Isn't that fab?
