Young British designers looking for jobs in the textile trade at home or abroad should apparently look no further than the corporate presentations organised by Texprint at events like the recent Paris-based Indigo trade fair.

Analysis shows that the number of designers receiving offers of employment - both full time and freelance - following participation in Texprint's autumn display was up l6 per cent on last season's Indigo. While the number of designers making sales at the show rose by 28 per cent.
