This weekend's Pure looks set to be in the best in its history, with a 17% increase in the number of brands exhibiting at the show. The number of pre-registered visitors is also the highest recorded for the show.

Event Director Sam Bleasby said 'we're delighted with the high demand for Pure; it is a testament to Pure's popularity, and how, especially in a tough economic climate, buyers needs are able to get the best possible choice and range of inspirational collections that will benefit their business. We've invested in the show to make it more appealing to buyers than ever before, with a new premium section, champagne tea parties, and two stages packed full of essential seminars , catwalks and industry leading guests.'

Buyers will be able to source from over 20 leading labels including Antik Batik, Betty Jackson Two, Stefanel, Anonymous by Ross + Bute, Single and Best Behaviour.

Top British designer Zandra Rhodes will be returning to the show with her handbag collection and her footwear range. Zandra Rhodes and Vogue.com will be live on stage, presenting key pieces from Zandra's archive showing her signature prints, textiles, colours and fabrics and how they have influenced her current handbag and footwear collections.

Legendary footwear designer Terry de Havilland will be interviewed on stage by Jessica Brown, editor of Drapers, on Sunday 1st August at 3.30pm. He will be discussing his collections, style and influences over the last five decades with his new collection on show alongside Zandra Rhodes footwear, Five by Rio Ferdinand and Strutt London in the Iconic Footwear Lounge.
