Source Fashion says its July 2023 edition attracted some of the fashion retail industry’s biggest names, including buyers, sourcing managers, product developers, technologists, and designers from the likes of John Lewis, H&M and Fat Face.
John Lewis fashion category sourcing manager Jean-Pierre Aguis shares his experience at Source Fashion: “I’ve had some interesting conversations with manufacturers and attended a few talks which were really insightful. This is the second time we have attended Source Fashion and it is a great fashion show.
“I had very interesting conversations with suppliers from Madagascar, which is not an area we currently source from, but the products they brought are very impressive so I have taken away quite a few interesting contacts.”
Vito D’Antoni, product developer, and production manager at Lulu Guinness adds: “To have everything in one place here in London, covering all the product categories from different territories is exactly what we want.’’
