Aug '13
The UK Fashion & Textile Association (UKFT) is delighted to announce its support for the forthcoming Professional Clothing Show and Professional Clothing Awards, which take place on 1-2nd April 2014 at Birmingham's NEC.

As the only show covering all three industry sectors of workwear, corporatewear and PPE, the rebranded Professional Clothing Show is an increasingly important event bringing together leading companies, buyers and distributors.

UKFT's support for the show has been warmly welcomed by the Professional Clothing show organisers, who see this as an opportunity for various industry bodies, such as UKFT, director-e and ASBCI, to speak with one voice in promoting an event that will cover the whole of the fashion and textile industry, both trade and retail.

Yvette Ashby, managing director of the Professional Clothing Show, said: "It's wonderful news that UKFT has committed to backing the show. I've admired the association for a long time and with their support we can make the Professional Clothing Show and Awards even bigger and better."

The Professional Clothing Show provides unrivalled opportunities for visitors to source and experience the most comprehensive collection of work-related uniforms, clothing and accessories in the UK. With over one hundred of the finest suppliers from UK and Europe exhibiting there is the opportunity to find workwear suitable for every walk of life, from corporate tailored suits to high-vis reflective gear, nursing uniforms, PPE, boiler suits, hard hats, chefs' whites, corporatewear and more.

UKFT CEO John Miln will be speaking and presenting awards at the Professional Clothing Awards, reflecting how important both fashion and textiles are to the professional clothing industry.

Explaining why UKFT has chosen to support the Professional Clothing Show and Awards, John Miln said: “Workwear is a huge part of our industry worth over £450m a year in the UK alone and we are delighted to support these awards and fantastic showcase. Our industry spans every aspect of what we wear be it for leisure or work and this is a great way for the UK to show what it can offer in this thriving sector both at home and across Europe.”
