Texfusion, an international sourcing textile show, and The London Print Design Fair (TLPDF), a leading print design show, which were held on March 20 and 21, 2018, in UK, attracted large number of visitors. TLPDF presented latest collections from around 50 international studios, while Texfusion showed collections from 100 global textile manufacturers.

With 148 exhibitors, Texfusion and TLPDF had an overall growth of +11.4 per cent in exhibiting space compared to the October 2017 edition, attesting to the attractiveness and strength of the two shows. The combination of the two shows attracted 2287 visitors in two days.

The quality of the visitors was higher in comparison to the previous editions. Visitors varied from large volume retailers, independent designers, from medium to high-end fashion brands. These trends confirm the strong position of the shows within the industry, proclaiming them as the leading sourcing events for the British creative fashion industry.

The buyers’ industry is a bit more fragmentated in comparison to previous editions, with an increase of garment manufacturers (24 per cent) and retailers (22 per cent), whereas the presence of wholesales and trade brands remains the same as before in terms of numbers.

An entire section dedicated to denim was launched this March, which immediately received a very positive response from the British market. The increased multi-sectoral offer was welcomed by the British buyers who, for the first time in the UK, had the opportunity to attend a show with an area completely dedicated to denim.

The March edition of Texfusion presented a wide selection of fashion fabrics from South Korea, United States, China, India, Turkey, Indonesia, Hong Kong, UK, Italy, and Taiwan. A larger collection of technical fabrics were displayed with the collaboration with the Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF), which organised the technical pavilion with ten among the finest Taiwanese manufacturers.
