Textile Forum delivering latest fabrics to designer market

22
Feb '12
Textile Forum will take place from March 7-8 2012 at The Music Room, London. It marks the 20th show for the exhibition that brings together panoply of fabrics from leading British and Continental suppliers aimed at the designer market.

Among the new exhibitors are John Boyd Textiles, one of the last weavers of horsehair fabrics in the world, online outlet Trims and Beyond, and The Woolmark Company, which will be presenting The Wool Lab, a sourcing guide to the best wool fabrics and yarns from suppliers around the globe. According to Rebecca Sharp, UK country manager for The Woolmark Company, Textile Forum provides the opportunity to promote the use of Merino wool, including Cool Wool for the spring/summer seasons, to both established and upcoming designers.

“Whether it is for daywear, eveningwear or bridalwear, buyers will find a great selection of high quality fabrics at Textile Forum, with the bonus that they are available in small minimums and often available from stock,” explains organiser Linda Laderman. “This was the premise on which Textile Forum was founded in autumn 2002 and it has held us in good stead ever since.

“In particular, in today's tough trading climate, it will be those companies that are not afraid to introduce innovative and distinctive collections that will fare better than those trying to battle for market share in the middle ground.

“This season, Textile Forum exhibitors have enlarged their collections and some have introduced more expensive ranges as designers and buyers search for the individuality that will keep consumer interest high.”

Among the exhibitors at the March 2012 Textile Forum will be Acorn Fabrics, Alan Litman, Basinghall UK, Bennett Silks, Bernstein & Banleys, Bradshaw & Bradshaw, Carrington Fleet Textiles, Denholme, EQS, G H Leathers, Graham Smith, Henry Bertrand, Holland & Sherry, J T Knitting, James Hare, John Kaldor, Laurent Garigue Partnership, Michael's Bridal Fabrics, Pongees, Ringhart, Ruffo Coli Tessuti, Schwarzschild Ochs, Solstiss and The National Weaving Co.

Also participating are First Rate Foreign Exchange, which will be sponsoring the Wednesday afternoon drinks party, and trade charity the Fashion and Textile Children's Trust.

At 9am on 8 March, the organisers will be staging a briefing session for fashion students. Among the exhibitors participating will be The Woolmark Company, which will report on the wool fabric trends for s/s 2013.
