UBIFRANCE to organize French Fashion Showroom
Nov '11
The French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in London will host a French Fashion Showroom at Le Méridien Piccadilly hotel in central London on 16 November 2011. The B2B event will give British agents the opportunity to meet French clothing companies between 1.00pm and 6.30pm on the day.

The companies participating in the French Fashion Showroom organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in London are listed below; more details can be sent on request.

Actuelle means the 'present time' in French. The French company specialises in mid-range women's fashion and its products have been available for a few seasons on the Irish market. Actuelle meets its customers' needs by presenting chic and casual collections for the working woman.

Aggabarti's garments are inspired by ancient Greece, embroideries from Seville, Ibizan rochet dresses, and the feminine patterns of Italy. Its ladies' fashion wear is distributed in 300 multi-brand shops in France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Spain.

Akela Key
Akela Key has created an original, contemporary and unique collection. The company's creative clothing fits any type of body shape and has been developed in a wide range of sizes. The company distributes its products within Europe, North America and Australia.

Et compagnie
Et compagnie's Autumn/Winter 2012 collection is imbued with icy, luminous shades and is a mix of deep browns and crystal greys. The company was launched for Autumn/Winter 2006 and it now has two sister brands: R876, which supplies the medium to high-end fashion market, and So Soon, which uses natural fabrics in creating its original womenswear.

The Garella group, which was created in 1970, is situated in Gardanne, in Provence (in south-eastern France). The group distributes its clothing brand across five continents and through 1,200 multi-brand outlets, as well as in 15 of its own boutiques. Under the Garella brand, the company offers timeless womenswear in an array of materials, which will be showcased at the French Fashion Showroom event.

Ken Okada
Created by a Japanese fashion graduate of the same name, Ken Okada's flagship product is its contemporary shirts. The company's first shop opened in 2005 in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district of Paris. Having exhibited at the Galeries Lafayette (in Paris) in 2009, the company (and its brand) has become increasingly well-known.

Le Secret de la Roche
The collections of Le Secret de la Roche are 100% French. Marine Buttner, originally a stylist in Paris, established the company in Drôme Provençale (in south-eastern France) eight years ago. Distributed throughout French department stores, Le Secret de la Roche's products are available for the Canadian and US markets, and the company seeks to expand across Europe.

Mademoiselle Sarong
Designed in France, Mademoiselle Sarong's ranges are hand-sewn in a workshop in Cambodia that is run by an association that values working women. The company's fashion ranges are made up of a mixture of plain and printed fabrics and simple lines.
