So if you are curious to see what’s going on at the Vinyl Factory this weekend be sure to register…
We really enjoyed our last visit to Dot to Dot, it’s a little show with a lot personality. A good place to cut your exhibiting teeth if your based in the UK or if you want to introduce your label to UK press and buyers. It will be lovely to return for this edition to see which young brands will become our Pirouette One to Watch winners in kids fashion & design at Dot to Dot.
Let’s hear what they have in store for us from one half of the duo in charge – Carly Gledhill Dot to Dot London trade show director:
The show’s appeal has grown worldwide as this season exhibitors travel from as far afield as Korea, Switzerland, Spain and Scandinavia. They will show their collections against the industrial back drop of the fabulous, central London, Vinyl Factory.
We have some great new brands joining us this season and more brands from abroad than ever before. Bang Bang Copenhagen are showing, this is their first time showing in the U.K! We welcome back Amy & Ivor who will be showing 2 collections and Bob & Blossom, Frugi, Dotty Dungarees and The Bonnie Mob are some of the larger brands who return this season. We have 9 Spark brands which is the most we’ve ever had and they are an eclectic mix covering everything from wallpaper to cycling inspired bags to kimonos!
Children’s fashion industry experts Pirouette will once again be at the show on the lookout for the best emerging talent entering the industry. They will present ‘One to watch’ awards, to the most deserving of brands in two categories: fashion and design. These will be announced alongside the Dot to Dot awards given to the Best fashion brand, Best accessories brand and Best newcomer.
Both the Dot to Dot Awards and the Pirouette One to Watch Awards will take place on the Sunday the 25th June 2017.
