Premium London tradeshow Jacket Required will partner with online platform Trouva for its January 2018 edition.
Trouva, the marketplace for independent stores, currently brings together more than 350 selected boutiques across 119 towns and cities online. The platform sources unique fashion and lifestyle goods from its network of shops, enabling customers to shop and discover over 80,000 design-led products at the click of a button.
“Speaking with Trouva, it was immediately evident that we share many of the same qualities in terms of stores and labels that we work with, and there is opportunity to explore further how we can support our brands and buyers together,” says Mark Batista, founder, Jacket Required.
“Jacket Required hosts 300 selected collections under one roof, allowing retailers to catch up with existing suppliers and source new products in one place during the international buying calendar. And Trouva embrace this same model for the consumer. Trouva increases the visibility of smaller stores and in turn boosts sales, with the idea that you can shop your perfect independent high street online, putting together a shopping bag from selected stores across the country.”
Having just celebrated its second birthday, Trouva now looks to welcome further selected boutiques into its community, and will team up with Jacket Required to present the platform to key fashion retailers at the upcoming autumn/winter edition.
Taking place at London’s Old Truman Brewery on 24-25 January 2018, Jacket Required and Trouva invite you to stop by the dedicated lounge for buyers, brands and press and hear more about the platform, how you can be involved and talk about becoming a Trouva store.
