The trade exhibition, which takes place at The Music Room in west London on October 19 and 20, will offer the broadest range of fabrics since its inception 10 years ago.
The show is aimed at fashion professionals looking for fresh fabrics, and so could prove inspirational for creative lingerie, swimwear or nightwear designers. The Textile Forum offers buyers the chance to explore a wide range of materials including silks, satins, leather, lace, crepes and cottons.
For designers looking for organic or vegetable-based textiles, there is a number of options on offer such as vegetable linen, bamboo-based materials and organic options of cotton, wool, linen, silk, linen, hemp and alpaca.
There are a number of new exhibitors at the show this year including EQS showing the Michael Miller range of retro and contemporary cottons and fine lace specialists British Alpaca Fashion.
