We look back at London Bridal Fashion Week & White Gallery in 2019
For the second year in a row, London Bridal Fashion Week and White Gallery were held together at the London ExCeL.
This year was the most successful London-based event for the Ocean Media bridal team and saw visitor numbers increase by 9% year on year.
“This year was all about capturing the essential spirit of Great Britain, to celebrate the fabulous industry we have here in the UK,” comments Cassandra Denman, Event Manager for London Bridal Fashion Week and White Gallery. “There were so many exhibitors for buyers to meet with, and some amazing interactive feature areas too for visitors to enjoy.
“With such high visitor numbers and an excellent re-book rate for 2020 already, we’re hard at work making sure next year’s event is even bigger and better than before.”
Features at this year’s show included a private Justin Alexander fashion show, an extensive seminar programme and the first ever London Bridal Fashion Week Big Night Out, which saw London buses transport buyers and exhibitors to the Cutty Sark for an evening of live music and prosecco.
“LBFW was simply amazing! The buzz around the halls was there for all to see and the new stunning theming of the exhibition gave suppliers and stockists alike great opportunities to work and relax in a beautiful environment.
“For Rachel Allan we had a phenomenal show and received such lovely feedback from both existing and new customers on our collections and the presentation of our stand, making all the hard work and planning for the show so worthwhile.
“We saw more customers than ever before including a number of new international visitors for us which is fantastic. We are already excited to be confirmed as an exhibitor for 2020 and look forward to working with the amazing team that put LBFW together in such a beautiful way!” Kirsty Voce, Rachel Allan at London Bridal Fashion Week
"We were very impressed with White Gallery this year, there was an improved look and feel to the show along with a large number of overseas buyers, press and UK boutiques. It was a Hugely successful event for us, and we are looking forward to next year already." Joanna Southwell, Bowen Dryden at White Gallery
