Source Denim is the only sourcing show in the UK, according to Fashion SVP

London-based apparel sourcing event Fashion SVP is to add what is thought to be the UK's only denim fabric and clothing show this summer.

Fashion SVP is aimed at brands and retailers who buy direct from factories, and provides buyers with the opportunity to meet apparel manufacturers from 20 countries.

Taking place on 26-27 June at London Olympia, this year's event will run alongside Source Denim which aims to bring the best of private label denim apparel, ready-made garment and fabric manufacturing to the UK.

Earlier this week, event organisers revealed sourcing professionals including Angelica Sergi, vice president of supply chain and production at Temperley London, will share their insights with attendees during the two day show.

Together with other industry leaders, they will provide show visitors with valuable solutions to current sourcing issues. The open sessions will focus on issues around the changing nature of brands, retail and sourcing, how to reduce lead times, what the future of retail looks likes, the end of long range planning, data driven buying and more.

Fashion SVP features over 120 global suppliers, carefully chosen for their production expertise, and covers all aspects of apparel buying and production.
