Cheryl Sivewright, director, womenswear store Woodlane of Doune 

Bw cheryl siveright woodlane


We travel to trade shows in February to March and August to September each year, mainly in Europe. Paris (Who’s Next), Copenhagen (CIFF), Madrid (Momad), Milan (Micam) and two UK events (Moda and Pure London) are our main shows, along with supplier showrooms in Athens and the UK.

We go to CIFF for the Scandi styles that suit the UK climate: easy-to-wear, quirky designs that cover a whole size range.

Momad has unique suppliers with colourful and more fitted styles, covering a range of sizes with good price points.

Micam is the best shoe show that we have been to. It has a vast range of quality styles at differing price points.

Moda offers a range of good brands and styles that are relevant to our customer base. It is also great for networking.

Pure London is a mainstay show, but of late we have found that we can source most of our suppliers elsewhere. It has lost a little direction for us.

We touch, feel and try on almost everything we buy. It’s vital – we simply could not buy online or from a brochure. We have to ensure that all styles can mix and match to achieve a range of outfits. As we know our customers so well, we can visualise many individually and consider new styles for them.

We are very proactive buyers, and are keen to let our suppliers know our detailed requirements and also feed back our experiences with the previous season. This two-way process is mutually beneficial – and can influence future designs.

Once we have selected styles, it is very important to listen to the views and opinions of our knowledgeable designers and agents.

 

Ravi Grewal, creative and buying director, menswear store Stuarts London

Ravi grewal, stuarts bw


 For us at Stuarts, attending trade shows is very much a valuable thing to do.

I will attend Man, Project, Capsule and Liberty Fairs in Paris, New York or Las Vegas, depending on my schedule, Mrket New York, Pitti Uomo in Florence, Welcome Edition in Paris and Jacket Required in London.

These shows seem the most relevant to my business and, of course, allow me to catch up and network with old and new industry friends.

I would like to visit the Japanese and Asian trade shows to find something new and fresh that could work with our current offer.

Sometimes the cramped spaces [of shows] don’t allow a brand to show its full potential. However, I am not a show organiser and I can only imagine that an immense amount of behind the scenes work is put in to give buyers the best results.

 

Olivia Cantillion Founder, womenswear site Own The Look

Olivia cantillion own the look 2 bw


We’re attending lots of trade shows this year including, Pure London, Scoop (London) Who’s Next (Paris), Capsule (Paris), Coterie (New York), Momad (Madrid) and CIFF (Copenhagen).

We try to attend as many trade shows as possible, as each show offers something different each season.

We’re searching for niche brands with core criteria – such as their UK presence and price point – so it’s key to never miss an opportunity to find a great brand. Having feet on the ground is key to this.

I find shows in Paris, Copenhagen and Madrid deliver a great selection of new talent, and shows in the US are valuable for their size and scale of delivery.

I absolutely think trade shows are still valuable to attend. I’m of the mindset that if you find one new brand to bring on board, the show was worth attending. For Own The Look, other than channels such as social media, attending trade shows is the main way we discover new talent.

I would absolutely love to attend trade shows and visit showrooms in Shanghai. I believe this region of the world is one of the most forward thinking and style driven, and would deliver a selection of brands that are directly in line with our consumer.

I would like to see a larger mix of new and emerging brands at trade shows. It is often well-established brands that are in attendance year after year, so it would be great to have a development area for new talent. I would also like to see the addition of more brands each year to keep the mix interesting.

 

Zoie Walker Director, womenswear store 32 The Guild, Northampton

Zoie walker


The only trade show I visit is Scoop. The contemporary brand mix and amazing location appeal to us.

I don’t enjoy attending trade shows, particularly the huge ones. The best I have found is the more tailored edit of brands at Scoop, and I like to visit showrooms. The brands that really inspire me don’t show at trade fairs in the UK, so I have to visit them independently.

I think once you have been to the trade shows and discovered brands that excite you, it is far more preferable to visit them thereafter within the showroom environment. However, trade shows do have a place as they provide the initial exposure of brands.

 

Sarah Connelly, owner and director, Edinburgh lingerie store Odyssey Boutique

Sarah conelly odyssey boutique 25bw


I love getting inspired at trade shows. I love that people connect and recommend brands. I love having time to get back to the core of my business and source incredible new stock for the next great season.

We will be going to Splash in Paris, then Dessous London [an invitation-only showroom] and the London Swimwear Show in July.

I’m searching for fashion-forward, high-quality swimwear to add to my boutique and Splash is a specialist show. Dessous London caters to the independent luxury labels and niche lingerie brands that suit my store.

I’d love to see more of the US shows to get a feel for different brands, and to gain a fresh look and inspiration on merchandising, trends and retail concepts. Travelling away for shows gives me so much beyond the show walls, and I feel it’s a vital part of being inspired and tuned into retail and culture as a whole.

The shows are always jam-packed for me and I think what they offer from a brand and experience point of view is perfect.

I have noted more and more brands taking spaces outside of the shows in nearby locations, but that does impact who I’ll see. The point of shows is that everyone comes together in one space at one time. If that gets diluted, and I can’t see who’d I’d like to at the shows, I have to make a call on whether to spend more time travelling between appointments than actually at appointments. There has to be a trade-off.

 

Charly Wright Brand manager, women’s and men’s store Henmores in Ashbourne

We will be visiting Scoop, Moda and INDX in the UK as our regular shows for spring 19. In autumn we did attend [sportswear show] ISPO in Munich for the first time for outdoor brands, which was great. We would do that again for autumn 19.

Moda in Birmingham has always been good for visiting our existing brands such as Barker, but we also picked up Birkenstock there last year.

Scoop in London is great for independent luxury brands.

ISPO was fantastic for finding new premium outdoor and lifestyle brands from Europe, such as Haglöfs and Falke. It was good to network with these new brands and explore the latest trends in fashion and textile innovation.

I think there are fewer premium and large brands attending trade shows now, particularly those who have their own showrooms or do store visits.

I think trade shows are still a great way for young brands to get exposure, or for brands to enter new territories. Some agents are now banding together to create their own mini-shows, saving on costs by renting a space together. It’s a good idea and could create complementary business.

I do still think it is valuable to go and see if something new is appearing at trade shows. But it is more common for us now to buy on recommendation of an existing agent, because we trust their judgement on quality and brand adjacency, or we hear about brands on word of mouth and social media. One example for us is footwear brand Fairfax & Favour for autumn 18, which we heard about via an agent, and is a great addition to our brand mix.

 

Julia Jaconelli Founder, womenswear store Courtyard in Guildford

Bw julia jaconelli the courtyard guidford

Trade shows are a very valuable part of the buying process. You can find things you would not necessarily be looking for but absolutely fall in love with. It gives an overall feel for what the trends are going to be for that particular season, too.

This season I will visiting Scoop and Pure London, Premium and Show & Order in Berlin, and Tranoï and Premiere Classe in Paris.

Scoop is probably my favourite  show, as collections are very in keeping with what I sell. There’s always something new. It’s not too vast and the layout and standard of merchandising is high.

I also enjoy going to Berlin to find new designers that are not stocked in the UK. There don’t seem to be many UK buyers in Berlin, and I have found several collections at both Show & Order and Premium that I have exclusively stocked at Courtyard, and have become very successful.

Paris is probably my favourite city, so I always go, and I feel that the accessories that are on show there are the best you can find.

I would like to go back to Coterie in New York. On social media, I am seeing some fantastic brands that can only be found there. It’s a long way, but I think it will be worth it. I am more and more interested in finding brands that are less well known, and moving away from household names that can be found in department stores or have a wide distribution in the UK.

An independent multi-brand boutique should be a treasure trove of interesting new brands, but also, of course, include some of tried-and-tested brands.

I would also like to visit India to see what they have to offer and I will probably visit Copenhagen as the Scandinavian brands are so wearable, affordable and fresh.

I don’t like trade shows that go on and on with no defined layout – I feel like I am wandering around not knowing where to go to find what I am looking for.

Maybe trade shows could pay more attention to price categories so buyers know where to go to find new things suitable for their particular store.
