Fabrics & trims show Textile Forum begins March 9
Jan '16
The next edition of Textile Forum runs from March 9-10, 2016 at One Marylebone and has attracted a number of new and returning suppliers who will be showcasing luxury fabrics and trimmings for spring 2017.

Among the first-time exhibitors is Hand & Lock, embroiderers, whose work can be found within the collections of the top couture houses and bespoke military outfits created by Savile Row tailors.

“The company will be displaying samples of its intricate handwork and also looking to secure entries for its international embroidery competition to discover next generation embroidery designers,” a press release said.

“Sourcing luxury fabrics has never been easier for designers,” Textile Forum co-founder Linda Laderman said.

“Our venue provides an elegant, spacious backdrop that complements our exhibitor's collections, which is why some of the biggest names in the fashion industry have already registered to attend the event," she added.

According to Textile Forum, for spring, bridalwear is a particularly important sector and designers will be spoilt for choice with the plain, embroidered and fancy fabrics offered by exhibitors.

These include Bella Tela, Portuguese company Sanmartin and Jose Maria Ruiz (JMR), all of whom have selected the March show to mark their return to the event.

Michael's Bridal Fabrics, which is seeing a demand for 3D designs and those with a vintage look said that the next trend will be in silk blend and polyester brocades in ivory and soft pastel colours.

While traditionally the spring shows are more womenswear focused, Textile Forum also offers a good selection of menswear fabrics for formal, evening and casual occasion.

“Designers will be able to select the finest cloths from Holland & Sherry, which is celebrating its 180th anniversary this year, A W Hainsworth and Dugdale Bros,” Textile Forum informed.

There are many returning exhibitors like Laurent Garigue, Solstiss, Henry Bertrand, Bennett Silks, Makowers, Ringhart Fabrics, Tiss and Teint, G H Leathers, Bernstein & Banleys and Alan Litman.

For the first time, Textile Forum will be welcoming a garment manufacturer to the show, London-based Plussamples, which specialises in men's and women's soft tailoring, soft separates and light-weight silk and jersey fabrics. (AR)
