Fashion SVP expands by 50% for September edition

Sourcing and production trade show Fashion SVP has announced that its fifth edition, on September 29 and 30, will have 50% more exhibitors than the 2014 event.

More than 100 producers of wovens, jersey, knitwear, denim, fabrics and accessories will be participating at the exhibition in London’s Olympia next month.

Manufacturers from 14 countries, including the UK, Portugal, Morocco, Romania, Tunisia, Egypt, Bulgaria, the Baltic states and Turkey, will be showing at the event.

Macedonia, Cyprus, France and Morocco will be represented for the first time this year.

In response to demand from buyers last year, the show organisers have increased the number of Turkish exhibitors from four last year to 20.

Fashion SVP has worked closely with EIB, the trade association in Turkey, to select suitable producers from the region.

Event director Buzz Carter said: “We’ve seen terrific growth in the show due to the success of previous editions and responding to the industry’s demand for a wider selection of manufacturers and countries.

“We’ve brought right to the UK’s industry’s doorstep a prime selection of high-quality new producers, saving time and resources for ultra-busy production and sourcing executives, and have moved the show to a convenient two-day midweek slot.

“This edition will be packed with exciting and innovative fashion manufacturing solutions.”

Fashion SVP will run a series of seminars over the two-day event with speakers from Jaeger, F&F, Vivienne Westwood, Bolongaro Trevor, Gant, Fashion Enter and Ethical Fashion Forum.

Drapers’ editorial director Eric Musgrave will be chairing a panel discussion on the “State of UK manufacturing” at 1.30-2.15pm on Tuesday September 29.
