Discover What to Expect from the London Textile Trade Fair 2019 ⇒ Focusing on Spring/Summer 2020 pre-collections, the London Textile Trade Fair (TLTF) is a crucial event for the fashion industry. The event will take place from 9-10 January at the prestigious Business Design Centre in London. Around 500 exhibitors will showcase their collections this January, with predominantly European manufacturers (98% of the exhibitors coming from Europe and Turkey). Now, CovetED will let you know what to expect from UK’s premier platform for fashion fabrics, clothing accessories, print studios and vintage garments.
TLTF was established back in 2007 by John Kelley where its very first edition only had 25 exhibitors. Now it has grown into a trade fair with more than 470 exhibitors. The event has an extremely unique methodology when it comes to exhibitors. The concept is based on each exhibitor having a single stand, chairs, table cloth, rails and a sign. Every exhibitor has the same opportunity to promote their work.
Industry professionals will have the unique opportunity to source from a wide selection of fabrics, accessories, vintage garments and prints. The show gives a complete overview of the market trends for Spring/Summer 2020. More than 5000 visitors are expected to attend the two-day fair. With an average of 85% of visitors from the UK, TLTF has an increasing number of people coming from France, Belgium, Italy, Portugal, Northern Europe and the Middle East.
When it comes to exhibitors, the event will count with the participation of 400 exhibitors who will present more than 600 collections. Fashion Fabrics (Village Green, Mezzanine and Auditorium) will be the predominant area of the
show. The exhibitors will be mainly European, coming from Italy, France, Turkey, Portugal, Spain and the UK.
The Accessories area, in the Gallery Hall, offers a wide selection of buttons, labels, zips, tapes, linings and trimmings from the top European manufacturers. The hall will host 60 exhibitors from Italy, France, UK, Spain, Germany, Denmark, Portugal, Turkey, The Netherlands, Greece and Switzerland.
The Print Design and Vintage Garments are together within the Atrium Hall and offers a selection of prints vintage which inspires the future collections. “Definitely the show to be if you want to sell your fabrics among the top UK brands.” Gianni Colombo – Dragoni S.p.A. – Exhibitor TLTF
