New Source Denim at Fashion SVP attracts major producers

  • Leading names confirm in new denim hall at June 2018 edition
  • Source Denim to feature denim apparel, fabrics and trends

IDEX, the organiser of Fashion SVP, the UK’s leading international sourcing show, announced today that after a large expansion of the event at the June 26-27 edition into the global denim sector, major producers have confirmed their presence at the show.

Over 40 premier denim producers from 12 countries are being lined up to participate in June, and these include mills and service providers such as Soorty, Siddiqsons, Billoomi, Marjomotex, GIFF Tekstil, Everest Lavanderie, Changzhou Hengfeng, Surayalakshmi, Sapphire, Nassa, Anubha Industries, KG Fabrics among many other leading names.

“We’re delighted that so many top producers are backing this exciting new initiative which brings most of them to London for the very first time,” said Fashion SVP’s CEO Buzz Carter. “We have responded to increasing demand from both brands and UK high street retailers to present denim at Fashion SVP, and since there has been no significant UK presentation of international denim manufacturers until now, the launch of Source Denim is a logical next step in the show’s development.”
