Textile Forum puts emphasis on fancy natural fabrics

Aug '11
At the next Textile Forum fashion fabrics show (19-20 October 2011, The Music Room, London) fabrics woven and knitted from natural fibres will be even more evident with the arrival of several first-time exhibitors.

Johnstons of Elgin, well-known for its cashmere, The Merino Company, with its blended jerseys and intricate jacquards, and British Alpaca Fashion, reviving fabrics from the Victorian age, will all be joining this successful event this year.

"This season the emphasis is very much on natural and fancy fabrics with lace particularly prominent as the impact of the Royal Wedding shows no signs of abating. Visitors will also be able to see the upcoming trend for fabrics with a 3D effect," says organiser Linda Laderman. "Textile Forum will also capitalise on the resurgence in demand for British-made fabrics, popular for their heritage status."

At Filtex the 3D effect is created with embroidery and Michael's Bridal Fabrics also has fabrics with this effect. According to Alan Litman in the aftermath of the Royal Wedding crochet still continues to be incredibly popular and floral laces with brushed lace is defining the new winter bridal collections.

A strong range of cottons from Acorn and Ringhart, fine men's and women's wools and cashmeres from Holland & Sherry, tweeds from Marling & Evans, merino wool knits from JT Knitting, buttons from R & B Accessories and exotic leathers from G H Leathers are also among the extensive collections available at the October exhibition.

Textile Forum is open from 10am to 6pm on both days. Entry is free.
