What are your favourite things about White Gallery?

The exhibition is a place for us to showcase our collections, meet prospective stockists and catch up with the owners of the stores we already supply. It is also a great way to meet and network with others in the industry and the media.

Tell us a little about what we should expect to see from you at the show – can you reveal anything about the new collection?

We are focusing a lot more on separates and giving the stores and brides the power of choice. We are very excited to work on a proudly South African part of our collection as well, utilising ostrich feathers and mohair from local farmers.

Will the exhibition be the first chance retailers have to see your newest collection in its entirety?

Yes, we launch our new collections at White Gallery every year – 2018 is no different.

How many pieces do you expect to bring with you?

There will be at least 30, probably more.

Do you have a top tip for how retailers can best spend their time at the show?

Have a list of designers that you would like to meet and book appointments with them as soon as you can, that way you are assured of getting the most out of viewing their collections and get to see it on a model.

What are you most looking forward to about the event?

Showing off all of our hard work and catching up with everyone in the UK. I don’t tend to get to London that often, so it is always exciting to see all the people we normally just have e-mail contact with.

Make sure you’re registered now so you don’t miss your chance to attend White Gallery.
