Fashion Trade Shows 2019

Fashion Trade Shows And Sourcing Fairs 2022

Fashion Trade Shows 2022

There are tons of fantastic fashion industry trade shows in 2022 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 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 to a trade fair and regretted it afterward. 


Apparel Entrepreneurship presents a list of international trade shows divided into 2 segments: 


Material sourcing – fabrics and trims


Exhibiting fairs – where you can exhibit and sell your brand


Many fairs and shows in the  Fashion Trade Shows And Sourcing Fairs 2022 list haven’t yet determined the dates (if they will occur at all), because of the ongoing pandemic. We will update this list along the way as soon as we get information about the new dates. You can also use the links to see for yourself if they have announced a date yet. Remember to check the dates and restrictions when you get closer to the event dates, since these may change on very short notice.

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 the 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.
