The press and tradeshow shall also include “A Sense of Vision” section where a short, but highly creative static exhibition will take place. Says director Brian Duffy of the event:
“This Season we wanted to create a platform that was much more exciting for our visionary designers- the static exhibition allows them to be much more creative with their execution whilst remaining professional within a business to business event”.
Visionaries in this exciting showcase will include Carolyn Massey, Deryck Walker, Satyenkumar, BLAAK and Omar Kashoura to name but a few.
A "Future of Menswear" exhibition will also take place at STITCH, which was inspired by the original "Vision" concept. Fresh from Paris, the exhibition will showcase six final year Central Saint Martin’s Students (BA Fashion Menswear) who were shortlisted in a denim project sponsored jointly by Premier Vision denim and Wrangler. The exhibition will be open from 9:00-18:00 each day.
Overall, STITCH is an exciting and pro-active platform for the exceptional new designers emerging within the UK fashion industry. Offering brands the opportunity to unleash their collections in an efficient and innovative environment; designers are given the chance to increase their profile by networking effectively amongst buyers, press and retailers.
