WHY VISIT US?

A unique event specifically focused on ‘apparel, footwear and accessory’ sourcing

It’s great! You can meet the face behind the supplier, you get to build a rapport and relationship with the supplier and see the quality of their products, to touch and feel them.

I came specifically for the seminars and found them really useful and interesting. The speakers took time for questions, but they had covered the topics so well that we didn’t feel the need to ask any!

Product Developer, Perry Ellis

Fashion SVP is designed especially for those who buy direct from factories. The concept of the show is to provide you with the opportunity to meet the suppliers providing manufacturing services, so you can discover what Europe, Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean has to offer. Held over two days at Olympia, London’s best known event venue, this is the place to find out the latest information on sourcing know-how, evaluate potential new suppliers and network with other like-minded professionals from your industry. To hear visitor feedback from the most recent June event visit here.

History and Development

Fashion SVP was launched in 2012, and the event’s successful development is due in part to a specially invited advisory group comprised of senior professionals from retail and fashion brands. Our expert group guides the concept development, helping the organisers to ensure the event meets changing market requirements. This means that when you visit the event you can be sure that it is up-to-date, evolving, relevant and responding to your needs.
