The event, to be held on 19-20 July 2017 at the Business Design Centre, will feature a wide range of fashion textiles, accessories, print studios and vintage garments focusing on Autumn/Winter 2018 pre-collections.

The Fashion Textiles hall will highlight womenswear, menswear and childrenswear fabrics, while the Accessories area will showcase a diverse range of products from the best European manufacturers. The Print Design and Vintage Garments hall is expected to attract the leading UK and international studios.

According to Textile Events, 30% new companies have already signed up to the July event, marking what is expected to be another positive season for the company.

“2017 results are above expectations,” said John Kelley, show organiser and Textile Events owner. “All our shows are fully booked, and after the successful launch of the Home and Technical textile hall within Texfusion last year, we have introduced a new segment for garment manufacturers in March, which has immediately received a positive response from British buyers.”

As an answer to growing demand, Textile Events will be launching a new show in New York in August 2017. Titled, The Print + Design Fair – New York Edition, the trade event will be dedicated to the best British and European Print Studios, and will be held on the 17th floor of a historical building in the heart of NY’s Garment District.

The show will give European print studios the opportunity to present their latest collections to American buyers and build valuable, long-term connections within the US market.
