Fashion houses have always been among the most dynamic and open-minded companies. It could not be otherwise as they operate in an industry where products, customer tastes and societal demands change with the seasons.
The fashion clothing and accessories industry is also characterized by enormous and ruthless competition. Anyone who stops, even for a moment, is cut off.
Research into production techniques, materials and product innovation goes hand in hand with the need to innovate the marketing strategies and to find new ways to promote products and brands.
The fashion truck is a shop set up according to the needs of the ordering company, which may be one or more of the following:
- selling products
- displaying and promoting products
- giving visibility to a particular brand or sub-brand
- promoting the brand
- offering an information service
- educating the public in the use of a product
- furnishing an exhibition or commercial space.
Materials, lighting, graphics, colours, decorative elements and accessories are tastefully and consistently incorporated into the vehicle according to the customer’s directions.
The SET-UP is constructed according to an ergonomic and design-conscious plan, in order to facilitate the work of the operators and to optimize the presentation of the products.
The FASHION TRUCK can be equipped for a wide range of products:
- clothing (dresses, jackets, shoes, trousers, skirts, socks, shirts, costumes, underwear, etc.)
- fashion accessories (bags, glasses, jewelry, watches, wallets, hats, gloves, scarves, ties, belts, brooches, suspenders, etc.).
Based on the type of products handled on the vehicle, various equipment and furnishings will be installed:
- display shelving
- hanging bars
- walls and display cases
- anti-shoplifting systems
- storage compartments
- ad hoc lighting system
Each element is individually configured and designed to be easily used, furthermore the entire set-up is customized to give a strong brand and product identity.

Another positive aspect of these elegant mobile shops is that they can be equipped with an electric motor and a power system based on lithium batteries. In this way, the set-up becomes environmentally friendly, clean, quiet, and appropriate for any commercial context.
