LondonEdge Will Once Again Take London Olympia by Storm: September 2013

Presenting the biggest exhibition of alternative merchandise anywhere on the planet, LondonEdge celebrates the world’s most creative and exciting ‘niches’ in fashion, footwear and accessories.

With a reputation for attracting a high percentage of overseas buyers, this unique global show is dedicated to short order merchandise and is one of the most successful and enduring trade shows on the circuit.

Split into two notional areas, Original and Fashion, LondonEdge Original represents over 200 hard-edged, punk, rock, goth and tattoo inspired brands where as LondonEdge Fashion houses over 150 rock n roll, vintage, retro, pin up, burlesque and rockabilly collections.  With both areas heaving with clothing, accessories and beauty brands, there truly is something for everyone.

Although in its 14th year, Londonedge is still breaking barriers & this September 2013 show welcomes the highest number of new, first time exhibitors for years.

Along with the usual array of brands available, visitors can expect to see over 30 new, never seen before companies showing as many as 50 collections from all corners of the planet. New exhibitors to keep an eye out for include Betties Page, Faux Real, Hello Margo, Isabelle Batz, Jubly Umph, Music Legs, Time City and Dark Candles to name a few.

Elsewhere on the bustling trade show floor, Hell Bunny, Sourpuss, Iron Fist, Loungefly, Alchemy, Too Fast, One Direction, Banned, Collectif, Dead Threads, New Rock and TUK return once again to wow buyers and attendees with their one-of-a-kind and eye catching collections. 

Once again the plethora of entertainment on offer will not disappoint, with a unique blend of specialist acts and fashion shows taking to the main stage and fantastic Feature lounges feature in place.
Themed areas include VintEdge (for vintage, vintage inspired and crafty brands), complimentary hairstyling, free liquor shots, energising music and a great atmosphere, all proof of a show that can’t be missed.

When it comes to the business side of things, business is conducted onsite which eliminates the pressure to chase orders at a later date.

Always with the exhibitors needs at the forefront, this September, LondonEdge have a dedicated Buyer Liaison Manager on board inviting attendees from far and wide. A particular focus this season is on exhibitor nominated, VIP buyers from countries with a strong or growing economies including Australia, Scandinavia, Lithuania, USA and Germany.

Last season saw an overall increase of 14% against September 2012 with 14% increase in the UK attendance & 13% increase in overseas attendees. With these new additions, this September 2013 will no doubt see a further increase.

Continually developing and improving, after a trial date change for the January 2013 show, this September LondonEdge has returned to its usual format kicking things off on Sunday and finishing end of Tuesday.

WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE January 2015

The date is set. The next edition of the WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE trade shows, will take place from Friday 22nd to Monday 25th January 2016 at Porte de Versailles.  In the midst of its extensive renovation work, the Paris Expo - Porte de Versailles is keeping its doors open for events. This ambitious modernisation project aims to strengthen the role that Paris holds as tourism market leader with regards to international business.  The first phase of the renovation concerns halls 1 and 7, the main entrance and the central walkway with the creation of travelators between hall 3 and 4.   In line with this situation, WHO’S NEXT and PREMIERE CLASSE are having to evolve and transform. The areas are being rethought, reworked, to offer a more fluid experience, a clearer display of the trade shows’ offer.  By joining forces with Studio GGSV (Curator of the Saint-Etienne Design Biennial 2013) the trade shows guarantee a quality setting and optimal space layout. The plan is se

What is Size XO Fashion

What is size XO fashion ? OK, it is possible you have never heard of size XO.  It is also possible that size XO does not exist or never has existed.  Well, the fact of the matter is that I am fairly sure size XO does exist.  I was on facebook last night and on the Fashion Bug page someone was asking why Fashion Bug charged more for size XO then they did for size XL.  The lady writting the post mentioned she measured them and they appeared to be the same.  Anyway, I tried to research the size and did not find much at all.  It is my understanding (possibly and incorrect understanding) that size XO clothing was created for larger size women in the same manner that size zero was created for smaller size women.  It is very possibly simply a "vanity" size. OK, here is how Fashion Bug explained the size, " The sizes XL and OX are in fact different. An OX provides more room in various areas of the garment such as the body, armholes, sleeve length and shoulders. And a 1X hav

Too Many Fashion Blogs

Is it possible that the world currently has too many fashion blogs? Obviously I understand that fashion is the most interesting subject matter in the universe, but why does everyone wish to blog about it. Although I have not yet completed an official count, I estimate approximately six zillion may be in existence. Here are a few reasons that may possibly contribute to the over population of style relevant blogs: Fashion blogs can make bloggers money (advertising, affiliate programs, etc). Fashion blogging is a creative process. Fashionistas are creative people; it makes sense that they enjoy writing. Fashion bloggers are tired of reading opinions from other people and wish to express their own opinion. Although it is embarrassing to admit, I contribute to several but do NOT derive much of an income for my efforts (yes, this is maybe because I do not write well…). Therefore, I do not think financial gain is the primary reason that the world has to
