London menswear trade show Jacket Required is looking to increase its exhibitor numbers by a third as it relocates back to east London for the autumn 14 edition.
The autumn 14 edition, which will run from February 5-6 next year, will take over a newly developed space in the Truman Brewery. The increased exhibition space will allow for up to 50 new exhibitors to join the show - a significant increase on last season’s 150 brands.
It marks a return to east London for Jacket Required, which started life at the Rochelle School, just off Shoreditch High Street, before moving to Victoria House in Bloomsbury, where it was for three seasons.
Jacket Required’s event manager Alice Elliott said: “We feel the autumn 14 season is the right time to grow the show further.
“To develop the exhibition and continue to offer a wide scope of both established brands and emerging labels, a return to East London seems natural yet new, in a fresh, different space to where everything began.”
