Following the success of its March show, Textile Forum is relocating to a larger venue.

"The new venue is ideal in that it allows us to retain the intimate atmosphere of a luxury event, while growing the show organically so that we retain the appropriate level and mix of fabric producers," says Will Steele of Pongees, one of the founding companies.

The March exhibition featured the largest number of exhibitors since the show's inception, with visitor traffic 25 per cent higher than for the comparable event in 2003. Organisers now say the October show looks set to beat these records.

Other participants will include: Basinghall, Bennett Silks, Bradshaw & Bradshaw, Glentex, Henry Bertrand, JT Knitting, James Hare Silks, Laurent Garigue Partnership, Marno, Pongees and Schwarzschild Ochs.

Exhibitors will be showing a wide range of autumn/winter 2005 collections for the high fashion and designer market, including chiffons, silks, fake furs and speciality knitted and woven fabrics.

The fifth Textile Forum takes place from 13-14 October 2004 at The Music Room, 26 South Molton Lane, London W1.
