Contemporary fashion trade show Pure London has launched a new sourcing event, Pure Origin, which will run alongside its next event in February.
Pure Origin will feature more than 40 manufacturers from around the globe, including Blueberry Impex and Timeswell Textile from Hong Kong and Ribeiro & Matos from Portugal. A strong UK contingent will also be present including Oxford Blue, LS Manufacturing, Gil Design Studio, Kalopsia Collective and BeFab Be Creative UK.
Pure London managing director Julie Driscoll said the show would provide a gateway for manufacturers to break into the UK market. “Offering efficiency and time-saving benefits, Pure Origin will showcase a curated selection of international manufacturers, textile producers and white labels – it was the obvious extension to the globally recognised Pure London brand,” she said.
“The UK is renowned for its world-class retailing, booming e-commerce sector, innovative independents and resilience and following extensive research into the marketplace Pure Origin was created to deliver all aspects of fashion sourcing and manufacturing under one spectacular roof at London Olympia,” Driscoll added.
Pure London and Pure Man feature more than 800 brands and attract around 10,000 visitors from 13 countries. In addition to the show the event features seminars and content from partners such as trend forecaster WGSN and colour system Coloro.
The next event takes place from 11-13 February at London Olympia.
