Textile Forum marches into spring with more than 100 collections on show - 14th/15th March
Posted by: Textile Forum 01 March 2018
The next spring edition of Textile Forum running from 14-15 March 2018 at One Marylebone in London, will showcase more than 100 luxury fashion fabric collections. In addition, more than 20 garment manufacturers will be offering production and sampling services.
“The interest from fabric companies in Continental Europe to promote themselves in the UK has never been stronger, despite the difficult retail conditions in the UK,” says Amy Packham, Textile Forum’s event director. “We also have some fantastic new UK suppliers presenting in March so designers will have a wonderful opportunity to select from the broadest collection of fabrics that we have ever offered.”
First-time exhibitors in March include UK heritage menswear suitings brand Dormeuil; Linton Tweeds with its stock and bespoke collections; Miguel Alemany Sucra of Spain showing fancy tweeds and jacquard silks and TGM presenting its range of printed Italian fabrics.
Silk suppliers, and those specialising in fabrics for special occasionwear, bridalwear, lingerie and childrenswear, will be found in abundance, alongside suitings and shirtings for men, buttons, linings and labels.
Exhibitors will be showing fabrics for spring/summer 2019, as well as those for both spring 2018 and autumn/winter 2019 – all available in small minimums.
“Most of our exhibitors have been investing more in ensuring that current fabrics are available from stock,” adds Packham.
Following the success at the October Textile Forum, the Manufacturers Trade Show (staged by the Centre for Fashion Enterprise) will again be relocating its event alongside the fabric companies.
Additionally, representatives of the Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust will be manning the refreshment area and running a raffle in aid of the charity.
Textile Forum is open 10am to 6pm on 14-15 March 2018; register for free tickets at www.textileforum.org.uk
