As SS18 wraps up, we step straight into Autumn Winter with The Textile Forum exhibition next week 11,12th of October, displaying the next season´s fabrics.
The Textile Forum is a seasonal event held in London´s Marylebone twice per year, showcasing over 70 high end fabric suppliers and attracting London´s top designers to the event.
This season the Textile Forum has joined forces with the Centre for Fashion Enterprise(CFE), to create an area dedicated to high end manufacturing, thereby offering visitors both the fabric, and the production resources under one roof.
CFE is London’s pioneering fashion and FashTech business incubator whose purpose is to fast-track designers and entrepreneurs into successful businesses. Current businesses supported include Wales Bonner, Liam Hodges, Faustine Steinmetz, Roberts Wood and Alex Mullins. The Manufacturers Trade Show is a part of CFE’s Fashion Technology Emerging Futures (FTEF) project, part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). According to UK Fashion & Textile Association more than 80 per cent of fashion businesses are ‘micro SMEs”.
“The two shows will provide designers with an unrivalled opportunity to source quality fabric and garment manufacturing under one roof,” says Linda Laderman, co founder of Textile Forum, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year.
“The vision for our Manufacturers Trade Show is to connect fashion businesses with high end production units with a view to developing long lasting relationships. There is a strong synergy with visitors attending Textile Forum so we are delighted to relocate and provide our exhibitors with a two day event,” says Judith Tolley, head of CFE.
Source Studio will be exhibiting in the manufacturers section and is launching this season a new department – Denims.
