The new year starts with the first show of the season, the textile and fashion industry meet at the Business Design Centre on the 10th and 11th of January 2018. A regular event for all industry professionals, TLTF presents a wide range of fashion Textiles, Accessories Print Studios and Vintage Garments focusing on Spring/Summer 2019 pre-collections and Autumn/Winter Highlights.
The textile area is the largest since its debut in 2007 and occupies the main hall, balconies and 2 new rooms within the balcony level. Fashion Textiles has the 80% share of the total exhibiting space, giving a full overview of what the industry has to offer. The show remains predominantly European with 98% of the exhibitors coming from Europe and Turkey.
The Accessories Hall has 60 exhibitors predominantly coming from Italy, Spain, UK and Portugal. The number of exhibitors has been growing for the last 3 seasons and the exhibition has now reached full capacity. The show will present a wide number of manufacturers of buttons, zips, tapes, lining, trimmings, labels and other garments accessories.
Due to the synergy between print design and vintage garments, the two sections are again located together within the Atrium Hall. With around 60 international exhibitors, the hall aims to provide an overview of the forecasted trends for the next season.
Textile Events works closely with the Print Studios and most of them exhibit also at The London Print Design Fair (March/October). This renewed partnership has led to the launch of a new show in New York, last August, entirely dedicated to print design.
