This autumn’s Textile Forum, is set to take place from 10th-11th October (between 10am and 6pm) at One Marylebone, London. As a luxury fashion fabric fair, this event is ideal for designers of bridalwear, menswear and occasionwear who are looking to source quality fabrics and accessories with small minimums.
The event will showcase the largest range of luxury fabrics that the Textile Forum has seen to date, as high quality fabrics from an array of origins will be on offer.
