Fast Fashion London expects some 70 exhibitors
today Oct 16, 2012
The second edition of Eurovet's London trade show, taking place October 23 - 24, has moved up its dates by two weeks and will open on Tuesday rather than Monday. The organizer promises a "clear refocusing" on Europe for the goods on offer at its London show, citing France, Italy, Romania and Portugal for a start.
With 70 confirmed exhibitors, the trade show will again be divided into three distinct sections. One sector is comprised of fabric companies offering cotton, denim and knits and represented by French, Portuguese, Turkish, Moroccan and Pakistani companies. Manufacturers and co-contractors will also be participating, with a particularly strong presence from Lithuania, Morocco, Portugal, Romania and Turkey. And of course, there will be a ready-to-wear and accessories section from branded collections and private labels, mainly from France, Italy, Morocco and the United Kingdom.
Nearly a thousand visitors came out for the first edition of Fast Fashion London, 80% of the attendees hailing from the U.K. and 9.3% coming from France. The audience included buyers from brands such as Camaïeu, Armand Thiery, Aubade, Auchan, Debenhams, Harrods, House of Fraser, Next, and Topshop. The London event largely consists of exhibitors from other Eurovet shows — Tissu Premier, Fatex and Fast Fashion Lille. Fast Fashion London intends to be a traveling show that successively moves among the different apparel markets.
