Over 20 new exhibitors have already signed up to display ranges in London at the spring 2005 Turkish Fashion and Fabric Exhibition which will be held on 15-16 February at the Olympia 2 exhibition complex.

The event, which provides a preview of trends for spring 2006, is jointly organised by ITKIB (whose members are responsible for generating 30 per cent of all Turkish exports and over 80 per cent of textile and clothing exports) and by the Istanbul Textile and Apparel Exporters Association .

Latest statistics issued by the Istanbul Textile and Raw Materials Exporters Association reveal that after Germany the UK is now Turkey's most important customer.
