13/14 JANUARY 2016
The Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street, Islington, London N1 0QH (9am – 6pm)
This week Alice and I will be exhibiting at the London Textile Fair. We will be on the mezzanine in the Textile area in aisle M10. The show is made up of European and Turkish suppliers, exhibitors have tables and it is very easy to wander around and see what is on display. The show is relaxed and friendly and most attendees are from the UK so you land up bumping into lots of folk that you know. The building is bright and this is a pleasurable experience not being too big.
16-18 February 2016
Parc des Expositions
This is a large exhibition in Paris each February and September. The trend area is interesting but I find it difficult to wander around the main PV Fabric Halls as all the stands are enclosed. Sublitex will be exhibiting there, as usual, in Premiere Vision Designs area, formerly called Indigo, which is more open. Ettore Formento will be there from Sublitex.
Sublitex Private Viewing
9 & 10th February
Few of our fashion clients go to PV anymore so we have taken to doing collection launches in our design office and showroom in Leicester which has been a resounding success. Clients make appointments to view the collection over 2 – 3 days and enjoy the privacy and personal touch that this affords.
For Home Furnishing the start of a new year means one thing: HEIMTEXTIL, in Frankfurt.
An experience somewhat like a Marathon race, it requires stamina, strong shoes, regular caffeine shots and a stiff drink at the finish line. This enormous show allows you to view everything for the home from shower curtain rings to fabric.
If you arrive at Frankfurt airport you will already be acclimated to the environment of endless moving walk ways, up and down buildings surrounded by your brothers and sisters from all over the world.
The show is so vast and diverse that it is just what is needed to get the creative juices flowing after the Christmas break. I will be there this week and SUBLITEX are exhibiting so please come and say hello.
