Reflecting the shows commitment to small fashion businesses, LondonEdge will introduce a ‘Makers and Designers’ area for its upcoming edition, taking place 11 to 12 February at the Business Design Centre in London. The aim of the area is to give young brands a platform to showcase their work in a wholesale environment and increase their visibility.
Around 20 new designers, including the likes of Blackboard Label, Exo Umbra, Kitsch Republic and Little Pig Jewellery Designs, are currently signed up to the new section of the show, which is set to be one of the fastest growing areas, with more brands expected to be added to the line-up over the coming weeks.
Fully supported and substantially subsidised, the ‘Makers and Designers’ area will offer a critical stepping stone to small fashion industry businesses every season.
