London Textile Fair was held from July 19 to 20, 2017 and the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Brexit did not discourage buyers from turning up in full force. More than 470 exhibitors displayed textiles, accessories, print designs and vintage clothing for Autumn ’18 at the trade show.
New features at the show included a hall to host 50 new textile exhibitors. The accessories hall showcased 65 exhibitors. The show was praised by visitors and exhibitors for its casual and accessible atmosphere.
Exhibitors met buyers from brands such as Burberry, Ted Baker, Erdem, Topman, Gloverall, Oliver Spencer, Anya Hindmarch, Racil, French Connection and Marks & Spencer.
London Textile Fair is the UK's premier platform for fashion fabrics, clothing accessories, print studios and vintage garments. It provides manufacturers and their agents the opportunity to showcase products to the most influential British buyers and designers.
Most visitors are from the UK and comprise some of the most influential buyers and designers from the major high-street retail stores as well as independent designers and buyers from their contract manufacturers. Each exhibitor is provided with a single stand, chairs, table cloth, rails and a sign. So each and every exhibitor is promoted equally.
