Focusing on luxury fabrics, new trade show TexPremium was held from June 27-28, 2022 at One Marylebone in Central London.
As per a Drapers report, the show was organised by John and Fergus Kelley, Directors, London Textile Fair. Prices at the event ranged from €10/metre to €30 (£8.63 to £25.88), but most were €15/metre to €20 (£12.94 to £17.25). Although TexPremium is targeting a different market, the issues plaguing exhibitors and buyers were similar to those at the main London Textile Fair event in March. Supply chain issues were the most-often-cited challenge by TexPremium attendees.

Nothing Underneath choseTexPremium to seek out innovative sustainable fabrics. The London-based womenswear brand’s production assistant Sophie Houghton said, the company uses only use natural fibres, biodegradable textiles, etc. It’s always on the lookout for new, sustainable, interesting developments.
