London’s Textile Forum took place on March 6 to 7 at The Music Room on South Molton Street, and attracted a varied crowd of new and existing exhibitors who unveiled their latest fabrics for spring 14.
The event’s focus on UK and European mills showing stock and forward-order product, all available with small minimum orders, appealed to up-and-coming designers as well as established brands’ design teams looking for something special.
