London Textile Fair 2013 to exhibit French fabrics
Jan '13
For the second consecutive time, there will be a French Pavilion at the London Textile Fair on 23 and 24 January 2013. The Pavilion is organized by Tisslaine France Promotion, France’s national trade association for the textile industry, and is supported by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in London. In January 2013, there will be 17 exhibitors on the French Pavilion, against 10 at the fair before. 
The diverse French offer at the London Textile Fair will not only present a wide range of textiles — including wool, cotton, viscose, linen, silk and blends with synthetic fibers  in various price ranges — from weavers, knitters and printers, but also clothing-accessory manufacturers such as SATAB RUBANS and design studios such as CREATIONS ROBERT VERNET.
The spring-summer 2014 collection (S/S 14) will feature hybrids and blends, whose features will be expressed through colors, textures and patterns. This season will explore the parallels between nature and human creation, where color will reflect the range of natural light, from dawn to dusk.
Notable textures will range from the extra smooth to the coarse and granular. Designs and decorations will be varied, where geometric patterns will feature alongside natural materials. 
Britain is the fifth largest export market for the French textile sector (2012 figures). Exports of textile goods to the UK reached €291 million in value within the first eight months of 2012 alone. 
The 17 companies that will unveil their S/S 14 collections on the French Pavilion from 23 to 24 January 2013 are listed below.
AB CREATIONS/FABIEN DOLIGEZ has two collections: Fabien Doligez and Opening. The former is a collection of plain and fancy weaves; the latter is a Jacquard collection. Opening has a six-to-eight-week lead time for a small quantity of 150 m/col.
AVELANA S.N./ROUDIERE has revived the use of wool and wool blend. The company’s S/S 14 collection contains materials with innovative coatings that make up novel garments. AVELANA S.N./ROUDIERE uses viscose in the production of the Super Comfort Luxury Legging, an original product, and has an agent based in the UK.
BUGIS will present its original creations that mix jerseys with linen and silk. The collection also includes mini Jacquard Jerseys with Lurex yarn or Jacquard bouclés, classic or fancy quilted fleeces, Milanos and interlock combed cotton. The company has an agent based in the UK.
