Are you looking to develop your own fashion brand or label? If yes, then Printwear & Promotion LIVE! is the place for you. It provides visitors the opportunity to browse an extensive range of retail-inspired garments for re-branding, printing and embroidery.
The three-day exhibition provides the perfect environment to engage with leading brands and manufacturers to source fashionable and stylish clothing. Additionally, 2018 printwear styles can be seen live on the fashion show catwalk.
Printwear brands are currently experiencing huge growth, partly due to a rise in start-up brands using online platforms to get their brand out there, and partly due to the launch of lots of new on-trend products that lend themselves to street style. Elaine Barlow, brand manager for SF (Skinnifit) says: “Easy re-branding is key for these customers. In 2015 we changed all SF production to tear-out labels to enhance personalisation.
“We’ve spoken to a lot of customers at Printwear & Promotion LIVE! who come to see the range of brands and styles on offer; it makes such a huge difference to see and feel the garments in real life, and understand the high quality we are proud to offer. It’s also a great opportunity to chat about what products they are looking for; perhaps there is something we don’t yet offer in the current range and can start developing.”
New trends and styles
In addition to SF’s on-trend styles, this year will see a range of retail-inspired quality garments on display. A number of sustainable brands are all set to exhibit at the show, including Mantis World, Naked Shirt, Neutral and Écologie by AWDis. New brand Écologie will showcase a unique collection of sustainable garments in a variety of colours and finishes, including regenerated cotton products.
Popular fashion brand American Apparel is returning to the show with an aim to break the mould and offer new silhouettes in innovative fabrics. This brand provides the perfect platform for print.
Anvil will display its exciting new print-friendly collection. With a high stitch density for a smoother printing surface and easy-to-remove TearAway labels, the collection is ideal for customisation.
Visitors will be able to browse the new range of So Denim by AWDis products, ranging from traditional jeans to a selection of chinos, while trend-focused Tee Jays will showcase top quality polos, sweats and knitwear.
On the outerwear front, visitors will be able to see the latest Regatta Originals collection. Inspired by the Mancunian spirit, this all-inclusive jacket collection adopts the notion of the Manchester Worker Bee and blends together the timeless with a modern edge.
Finally, visitors looking to develop their own fashion label or brand can also discover ways to re-brand and personalise their garments with several label suppliers exhibiting, along with contract print and decoration suppliers. Printwear & Promotion LIVE! 2018 offers the whole garment decoration package under one roof.
