The fashion industry will come together at MAGIC in Las Vegas August 2017 for its bi-annual show! The floors will be filled with upcoming trends to watch for in the next seasons. To give you a sneak peek at what to expect, FN PLATFORM has chatted with Leslie Gallin, President of Footwear at UBM Fashion. Leslie leads the charge at MAGIC’s shoe show, FN PLATFORM, and is in the know when it comes to the latest and greatest styles, trends and emerging designers. She’s also known to throw the ultimate opening night party -  this year’s performance features classic rock legends from Journey, Steppenwolf, Lynard Skynard, and many more! 

Below, Leslie Gallin shared her top 5 favorite shoe styles to watch for on the FN PLATFORM show floor. 

Embellished Sneakers

Embellishments are making their way onto the casual-cool sneaker! The added flare dresses up  this comfy style for a modern, fashion-forward look.
