Stitch announces earlier spring 13 dates

Menswear tradeshow Stitch has brought its spring 13 edition forward due to avoid clashing with the Olympics.

The tradeshow, which will also return to the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, will hold its spring 13 edition on July 15-16. Last year the tradeshow ran on August 7 to 9. If the spring edition was based on its its previous August dates it would have clashed with the Olympics, which is held from July 27 to August 12.

Stitch has signed up previous exhibitors including Pretty Green, Alpha Industries, LTB Denim, Luke, Nicholas Deakins and Onitsuka Tiger.

Dean West, head of wholesale at Pretty Green, said he had signed up to the next edition of Stitch after experiencing successful past editions of the menswear tradeshow.

He said: “We’ve opened new business accounts as well as seeing our existing customers. There was a high calibre of brands and attendees.”

The July edition will be the sixth edition of the show, which was founded by Brian Duffy.

  • I wonder if any other shows will change their dates?

  • These dates are too early and will make Stitch even less relevant than what it already is. Big mistake.
