Textile Forum - a smash hit

Last week from 20-21 October 2010 at The Music Room in London, Textile Forum, fashion fabric show, was a smash hit with a record number of visitors attracted by the comprehensive range of fabrics and accessories offered by exhibitors, both for stock and forward order. In addition to the hundreds of independent fashion specialists who attended were representatives from Burberry, Top Shop, BHS, Jasper Conran, Maria Grachvogel, Vivienne Westwood and John Zack to name but a few.

“I'm so glad I attended as I found everything I wanted,“ explained Belinda Dickson of Belinda Robertson, a first time visitor, who was looking for knitted fabrics and accessories.

Jane Freshwater of bridalwear specialist Mirror Mirror, who complemented Textile Forum on being a “small but beautifully formed” event, was equally enthusiastic. “We have been in business for 21 years and don't often go to shows but we are really pleased we attended. We came with a hit list of fabrics that we needed and found all of them.”

Another first time visitor was Francesca Rosella, chief creative director of Cute Circuit who was looking for lace and stretch fabrics for her couture and streetwear collections. “The scale of the show was great,” she confirmed.

Designer Wayne Aveline, a winner of Project Catwalk, who attended with students from Walsall College was "impressed with the quality of fabrics available" and the "big name exhibitors such as Henry Bertrand".

Exhibitor Michael Bristow of Michael's Bridal Fabrics, was inundated with buyers, so much so, that he did not have time to have a break from his stand during the entire two days. “I may have to implement speed selling next season,” he joked.

Bill Whelan of House of Edgar who had another good show, said he hoped to have some nice follow-up orders.

The show also welcomed students from the Fashion Retail Academy, London College of Fashion and Instituto Marangoni.

“Since the launch of Textile Forum in 2002 we have always stayed true to our principles of providing a professionally organised event where suppliers of quality fabrics can meet their target customers and this season we delivered beyond our expectations,” explained Linda Laderman.

The next Textile Forum will be staged from 9-10 March 2011 at The Music Room.
