Celebration of fashionable textile fabrics @ Textile Forum

As designers look to select their fabrics closer to home, the 10th anniversary edition of  Textile Forum running from 17-18 October 2012 at The Music Room, London, will be presenting its largest selection of UK and Continental produced collections since the exhibition was launched in 2002.

“I am thrilled that for our 10th anniversary event we are including companies that have been with us since the first show, as well as some exciting new exhibitors, so that buyers will have a fantastic choice of innovative fabrics for daywear, eveningwear, bridalwear and lingerie for men, women and children,” explains co-founder and organiser Linda Laderman.

 
“Textile Forum is probably an even more appropriate event than it was 10 years ago as designers from all sectors of the industry can source high quality UK or Continental fabrics in small minimums as well as long runs,” adds Laderman. 
 
At this October’s show there will be laces and leathers, cottons and cashmeres, wools, silks, prints and plains, as well as complementary companies offering linings, labels and screen printing. 
 
Among the new exhibitors this season will be Liberty Art Fabrics, showing both its classic and studio collections, Insley & Nash, UK-based screen printers offering foil printing, devoré, fluorescent pigments, metallic pigments and dip/ombré dyeing and Belgian supplier Tiss et Teint, specialists in luxurious fabrics for evening, cocktail and daywear.
 
Other UK-produced collections can be found at Johnstons of Elgin, Holland & Sherry, J T Knitting, Laurent Garigue, John Boyd Textiles and Discovery Knitting. Ringhart is launching a new range of UK produced prints to complement its high quality range of fine cotton woven shirtings.
 
Michael’s Bridal Fabrics is extending its collections of fabrics and accessories through a tie up with French supplier Interstiss, which specialises in brocades/jacquards suitable for both waistcoats and bodices, but also has a digital printing facility offering low minimums.
 
 The demand for lace shows no signs of abating according to Alan Litman which has extended its Chantilly lace collection and also included new luxury beaded and sequined embroidery fabrics and reintroduced foils. 
 
The Woolmark Company will be promoting The Wool Lab, an inspirational trend tool that contains fabrics and imagery. The Wool Lab has been launched as an iPad app so designers can more easily check out additional information.
