The Trend Council will be hosting their own Designer Pavilion at Source British. In addition to the Designer Pavilion, buyers and exhibitors will be able to join Trend Council for live forecasting presentations on both days taking place in the morning and afternoon. This session, presented by Trend Council’s Director of Client and Creative Services Ash Allibhai, has been designed for buyers and exhibitors to identify trends that will shape retail in the upcoming season, outlining must have color, pattern and key items.

“British fashion has always been acclaimed for its ‘fearlessness’ and Brits are famed for their individual sense of style. Often described as having a ‘thrown-on’ feel to what we wear, mixing prints, patterns and styles and pulling this look off effortlessly,” says Ash Allibhai.

To be considered to be part of the Trend Council Pavilion, you must be: a contemporary British Label (apparel, footwear or accessories), or an agency that represents UK brands; a Label that are looking to export specifically to the US Market. For more information, email Ash Allibhai: trendcouncilpavilion@sourcebritish.com


US buyers, LA Fashion Market attendees and exhibitors who want top attend the daily trend forecasting presentations may register for tickets through Source British.
