UK garment manufacturers: Meet luxury fashion production managers at Textile Forum


Textile Forum is a great platform for UK garment production businesses to reach out to customers in their domestic market.

Textile Forum by UKFT is London’s premier sourcing event for luxury fashion fabrics at the prestigious venue One Marylebone. The show, held twice a year, attracts fabric buyers from major fashion retailers and brands, established independent design businesses and start-ups, tailors and costumiers.

Visiting companies include: ASOS – Aspinal – Bonsoir – Calvin Klein Japan – Christopher Kane – Coco de Mer – Curry’s-PC World – Disney – Dunhill – F & F – H&M – Halfpenny London – Harrods – Hemyca – J & M Davidson – J Crew – Janet Reger – Jermyn Street Design – Jimmy Choo – John Lewis – Joseph – JW Anderson – Merlin Entertainment – N Peal – Next – Nordstrom – Ozwald Boetang – River Island – Royal National Theatre – Royal Opera House – Sassi Holford – Savin London – Sir Tom Baker – St Pauls Cathedral – The Norwegian Opera and Ballet – Tiffany Rose – Victoria & Albert Museum – Vivienne Westwood – Warner Bros

Textile Forum was founded in 2002 to offer designers a quality product, with low minimums and fast delivery, and this has proved extremely successful.

In fact, it is even more relevant today.

Why? Because of the changes to supply chains and sourcing which have been accelerated by Brexit and Covid. This has resulted in:

  • Sourcing managers from major brands looking for suppliers closer to home
  • Less overseas travel
  • Smaller garment production runs – more flexible and reactive to consumer trends; reduced waste
  • Growth in emerging businesses entering the market – more new companies looking to do things differently
  • A thirst for innovation

The industry has changed. Consider exhibiting at Textile Forum as a low-risk way of reaching new customers close to home.

UKFT organises the show in partnership with Linda Laderman PR and members receive discounts on exhibiting rates. All prices include rails, table, chairs, signage, electricity, WIFI, porters and marketing.
