The July edition of The London Textile Fair (TLTF), which was held on July 18 and 19, 2018, closed the doors with very positive results. The exhibiting space hosted around 475 exhibitors with more than 600 collections. The show saw enthusiastic response from fashion companies, with 5270 visitors from all over the world, in the two days of the event.

There was a leading presence from Italy and Turkey within the fashion fabrics hall, covering together more than the 50 per cent of the exhibiting space, followed by United Kingdom (18 per cent), France (12 per cent), Portugal (7 per cent), and Spain (5 per cent). Exhibitors from 25 countries had the unique opportunity to showcase their Autumn/Winter 2019 pre-collections to the UK market with focus on wovens, jacquards, prints, and jerseys.

The TLTF July edition attracted top high street brands, retailers, multiples, manufacturers, and designers. Regular visitors like Marks and Spencer, House of Fraser, Top Shop, Top Man, River Island, Ted Baker, Debenhams, and many others attended the show. Around 60 per cent of the visitors came from the Greater London Area, thanks to the strategic location of the Business Design Centre. 84 per cent of the visitors came from the UK, travelling from Scotland, Manchester, Liverpool, and Birmingham. Increased number of visitors came from abroad, namely Europe (France, Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Germany, and Spain) Northern Europe, Russia, US, and the Middle East.

The Sustainable Angle, which  has been organising the Future Fabrics Expo since 2011, showcased for the first time at TLTF alongside other exhibitors. The new section was welcomed by the visitors, who had the opportunity to preview the latest innovation within the sector. The list of participants included 16 TLTF exhibitors which were selected to present their collection within this area. Visitors also had the opportunity to attend a rich programme of seminars, hosted by The Future Fabrics Expo and Lenzing Group. (GK)
