Fashion Trade Shows And Sourcing Fairs 2019 (-2020)

Fashion Trade Shows

During the year there are tons of fantastic fashion industry trade shows around the world for fabric and manufacturer sourcing and for exhibiting your brand to potential buyers. 

It’s always much easier to source fabrics and trims when you can see and feel the actual materials on the spot. You can discuss with suppliers about your needs and get recommendations and indications on what is new and innovative in each material segment. You will meet people from the industry and this is also vital for growing your network. It is much easier to do business with people you have already met before. 

When it comes to exhibiting your brand at trade shows, it’s a good idea to have been at that trade show to see if it would be a good platform for your brand. Will the trade show attract the right type of buyers for your brand? You can also visit shows to get inspiration and check out your competitors, what is hot, what is not and how unique is your brand compared to the ones on the market? It’s also a good indication of the trends and where the industry is heading. 

We have never been at a trade fair and regretted it afterward.

Exhibiting fairs – showing and selling your brand


If your selling strategy is wholesale/retail then exhibiting at trade shows can be a fantastic way to sell your collection. You will get on buyers radar for future seasons and you can also meet with press and fellow designers. Exhibiting comes at a cost though, so make sure you have calculated beforehand if this will be worth your money and time. And of course, it goes without saying: you have to be ready and well prepared for such an event.
