The next edition of Source Fashion will take place at Olympia London from 14-16 July and will feature some of the UK’s leading manufacturers, suppliers and businesses supporting the fashion industry.

Suzanne Ellingham, event director of Source Fashion said: “The UK has always been recognised as a centre for excellence in manufacturing fabrics and textiles, alongside garment manufacturing itself. Small makers and manufacturers proudly take their place alongside global manufacturing powerhouses, to ensure that if you are looking to manufacture close to home, there are people here you can partner and work with.

“It’s incredibly important as we move forward as a responsible sourcing show, that we support our UK fashion industry in any way that we can, because our visitors are looking for those options.”
