Each edition of Pure London welcomes an inspirational line-up of key industry speakers to London Olympia. The next edition of the show, organised by i2i Events Group and taking place 4-6 August, will mark its 34th season with three days of valuable seminar content across three dedicated stages.  

The Grand Hall Stage, situated alongside Body and Womenswear, will offer seasonal trend forecasts and panel discussions on all aspects of lingerie, shapewear, swimwear and womenswear.

WGSN will return to the show with predictions on the colours, styles and shapes that are set to be huge in womenswear for 2014, whilst Stylist Tamar Kendall will identify the key trends in lingerie; both will be demonstrated on the runway with daily inspirational catwalks.

Other speakers include Kamil Tavas, New Business Development Manager for Google, and Mimi Noor, founder of her eponymous boutique, who will both explore opportunities for establishing and marketing a business online. 

In amidst Footwear and Accessories, The Gallery Stage will provide further seminar content in between presentations of next season’s hottest footwear and accessory trends on the catwalk.

Dan Le Sauvage, Owner of Urban Vintage, will join a panel of independent retailers to advise on building customer loyalty within stores through VIP evenings and other tailored services; whilst Paul Sheehy, Founder of Folk Digital, will explore key social networks and how they can also be used to enhance customer engagement. Brand Consultant and Guest Blogger for House of Fraser, Noelle Reno, will also touch upon social media and other PR opportunities that can increase sales, boost business, and build a boutique’s reputation with industry peers and customers.
