Attend Fashion SVP in January to satisfy your sourcing needs!

Fashion SVP is the fastest growing fashion sourcing tradeshow in the UK, and will be returning to London Olympia again on the 16th and 17th of January 2018. The show brings you an assortment of great manufacturers from over 16 European and Mediterranean countries, and is the ultimate destination for fashion sourcing.

The event caters for all types of fashion buyers, retailers, sourcing managers and designers and is for anyone involved in the fashion sourcing and manufacturing process. Fashion SVP welcomes buyers from small and medium sized brands up to high street brands and retailers.

The event was launched to bring the two sides together as Event Director, Buzz Carter explains, “We launched the show to connect skilled apparel manufacturers with buyers and offer them a platform for effortless sourcing, taking the legwork out of researching and sourcing new suppliers. We have created an event where buyers can research numerous high-quality suppliers especially selected by our expert fashion board, see their products first hand, and understand their production capabilities. We are thrilled to be entering the sixth year of the show, where visitors regularly tell us how much time and money they save through just one visit.”
