Become A Successful Fashion Designer and get 20% Off Tickets to #BTIF2017

We're offering all fashion designers in our network a 20% discount on tickets to ‘Breakthrough in Fashion,’ 2017. #BTIF2017 is a multi-purpose conference that helps independent fashion designers who run their own businesses (or want to) take things to the next level. Here’s what you’ll get by attending:

Education Delivered By Experts

We’ve invited the UK’s TOP fashion experts to cover essential topics so you can take your fashion label to the next level. This year’s lineup includes Touker Suleyman (CEO at Hawes & Curtis/Ghost, & Dragon’s Den Investor), Bianca Miller (CEO at The Be Group/Founder at Bianca Miller London & Apprentice Finalist) & more.

Meet New Suppliers

We’ve confirmed carefully handpicked, relevant companies to set up shop (so you can meet new suppliers face to face, and exchange contact details). This year’s exhibitors include Launchmetrics, i.LEVEL Software, Simmons Gainsford, Fashion Pony (to name a few),+ more.

Meet Buyers

Buyers from top UK fashion brands will pop down for the whole day to run short, one-to-one meetings. Each designer will get to choose ONE buyer they’d like to meet. We’ll give you a time slot. You show up (each buyer has a limited capacity on a first-come-first-serve basis, so if capacity runs out, we’ll ensure you meet someone else).

Showcase Your Work. Win Prizes

Our headliner sponsor, London Ethnic are running a competition where each delegate is automatically entered into a prize draw. Five designers will get the chance to showcase their work on our runway throughout the day. One lucky designer will win the opportunity to have their collection showcased & sold in London Ethnic's boutique in Chelsea, Dec. 2017.

They'll also throw in business consultations, advertising and social media promotions...
