UK streetwear show eyes 2010 launch

Andy Magill, the former sales manager at menswear brand Gabicci Vintage is understood to be in talks with Gio-Goi founders Anthony and Christopher Donnelly to launch an innovative trade show concept.

The show, The Heritage Tea Party, will aim to bring consumers and the trade together at one event which will enable brands to showcase their collections as well as sell stock to the public.

Bands that were popular in the 1990s such as The Charlatans and the Inspiral Carpets are being lined up to perform at the event, which will also feature catwalk shows.

The show will be held at the 900-year old Broughton Hall in Skipton, North Yorkshire. It is about 26 miles from Leeds and 18 miles from Bradford.

Target brands include Modern English and Pretty Green, the new label from Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher. It will have dedicated sections for heritage brands, fashion sportswear, denim labels, street-wear, and footwear and accessories.

The event will take place from June 10-12, 2010 – in the standard show calendar this would put it about a week earlier than menswear show Pitti Uomo in Florence.

The Heritage Tea Party show will be the first dedicated UK streetwear show since To Be Confirmed closed last year.

Drapers will bring you more information as it becomes available. Register your interest at www.theheritageteaparty.co.uk.
