Textile Forum

London’s Textile Forum celebrated its 10th anniversary this year, and what a party it was.

The show, on October 17 and 18 at The Music Room on South Molton Street, saw regular exhibitors and exciting new names offer a feast of textiles and fabric innovations. The busy halls were packed with visitors from all corners of the industry, including representatives from brands such as Hugo Boss and Lyle & Scott, London Fashion Week designers James Long and Eudon Choi, as well as a crowd of student designers looking for that something special.

Insley & Nash

Making its trade show debut at the Textile Forum, Insley & Nash is a bespoke screen printing and dyeing firm from London. Using fabric supplied by the client, the printing company can apply a range of special techniques, including metallic foiling, flocking, devoré, 3D heat-treated puff inks and UV-reactive inks. Insley & Nash’s bespoke work featured in the spring 13 collections of JW Anderson, Giles Deacon and David Koma.

Tiss Et Teint

Also showing at Textile Forum for the first time, Belgian mill Tiss et Teint had one of the best and busiest stands, with a huge selection of interesting textiles featuring sequined laces, on-trend flocked patterns, laser cuttings, florals created through embroidery, floaty leather paillettes that look like sequins, and hundreds of tiny printed sequins arranged to create an image.

Ruffo Coli

A specialist in novelties and fancy fabrics, Ruffo Coli stood out with its unusual options, such as a jacquard in a ‘dry’ finish that graduates to a ‘wet’ look, a nice update of ombré. Another innovative piece features yarns dyed in different shades that make the fabric seem to change colour as it moves, while floral-printed fabrics have been woven with metallic flowers as a glitzy progression from the perennial print.
