This week Bernstein & Banleys have exhibited at the Pure London Autumn/Winter 18/19 show held at the London Olympia. We were thrilled to be part of a new section at the show called Pure Origin. Pure Origin focused on fashion sourcing and manufacturing giving buyers and brands the opportunity to connect with over 75 textile wholesalers and manufacturers from across the globe.
In collaboration with Textile Forum we shared the stand with a small number of key exhibitors from the twice-yearly Textile Forum shows. It was interesting to meet exciting, new emerging brands across womenswear and menswear.
There were also various events across three Pure area stages. These included catwalk shows, trend forecasting discussions, digital marketing and PR advice from lecturers at London College of Fashion as well as a full seminar programme.
Julie Driscoll, Managing Director of Pure, spoke of her objective to offer exhibitors and visitors to the show a full holistic overview of the fashion trade – from sourcing and production to selling and distribution.
We look forward to continuing our collaboration with the Textile Forum when we exhibit at their next show 14th-15th March at One Marylebone.
