Textile Forum, to be held during October 10-11, 2018 in London, will present broad range of luxury fabrics, with many exhibitors emphasising not just the quality of fabrics, but also provenance. Textile Forum is the luxury fashion fabric fair for designers of menswear, womenswear, bridalwear, special occasionwear, lingerie, childrenswear and accessories.

“Today’s fabric buyers are as keen to know the story behind the fabrics they have chosen as they are to ensure that the designs are on trend; provenance is really important these days as designers are looking to ‘connect’ with their suppliers," explains Amy Packham, Textile Forum’s event director. “At this October’s show we have many exhibitors who have a long history of producing the finest, specialist fabrics, constantly improving their quality and investing in new developments to meet today’s designers’ exacting specifications.”

AW Hainsworth is using Textile Forum as the launch pad for its new lambswool fabric. Best known for its heavier wools, Hainsworth is responding to the needs of the market by offering this new luxurious lighter weight cloth that is ideal for spring/summer garments for women.

First-time exhibitor AnBella Designs, part of Antex Broderie, specialists in Schiffli machine embroidery, will be showcasing a low minimum order range of limited edition designs. Also new to the show is Dentelles Méry, producers of Calais lace using traditional leavers lace machines.

Dormeuil will have its latest collection of luxury cloths made in the UK, as will Linton Tweeds.Other new exhibitors include Higgs & Higgs, which brings European made cotton prints and jerseys, Jozwiak with wool and wool blend fabrics designed for classic menswear and corporate wear and Weavabel with its range of handtags, labels, leather patches and packaging.

As well as designer, top end retail fabric buyers are also a target visitor for Textile Forum. Jane Makower has been selling into this sector for many years and her eponymous collection is now available from Alan Litman. On its stand at Textile Forum in October will be the most popular core lines, including moss crepe, needlecord, corded lace, transparent tulle and duchess satin.

“This season’s Textile Forum has once again raised the bar on the variety of collections available to designers looking to source fabric and accessories for their current and future seasons’ collections,” confirms Packham. (SV)
