The London Textile Fair is the UK’s premier platform for fashion fabrics and clothing accessories. TLTF provides manufacturers and their agents with the opportunity to showcase their products to the most influential buyers and designers on the UK fashion scene.

The first day of the London Textile Fair received upbeat reviews from both exhibitors and buyers.

Nearly 422 exhibitors showcased their products to around 2,000 attendees on the first day, the organizers reported. Exhibitors were packed in across three levels at the expansive show, and there is a waiting list of 30 mills looking to get spots at the exhibition.

Meanwhile, there appeared to be a steady stream of buyers perusing the textiles and trims on offer – big names such as John Lewis, River Island, Miss Selfridge, Jaeger, Hobbs, Ted Baker and Whistles were all spotted.

Show organizer John Kelly said that on the first day, they have seen the level of international buyers rise from 10% to 15%, and there has been a good mix of large accounts and new or smaller designers in attendance.

He added that despite the reports of uncertainty in the market, it doesn’t appear to have affected us, and certainly European fabrics are still popular.

London Textile Fair started on 11th Jan and end on 12th January, 2017 held at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London.
