i.LEVEL will be visiting London’s ‘Meet the Manufacturer’ exhibition at the Truman Brewery in Brick Lane this coming Thursday (25th May). If you’d like to meet us, drop a line to jez (at) ilevelsoftware.co.uk or telephone 07931 381209 and we’d be only too glad to grab a coffee with you.
As a strong supporter of UK fashion, we’re looking forward to visiting ‘Meet the Manufacturer’, not least because only fashion companies that manufacture in the UK are able to exhibit – indeed it is the only sourcing event specifically for UK manufacturers of clothing, textiles, fashion accessories, homewares and leathergoods.
The resurgence of companies manufacturing in the UK is a key fashion trend and ‘Meet the Manufacturer’ plays an important role in showcasing these garment and textile manufacturers. Indeed the exhibition has only been around since 2012 and in just five years has grown to become a mainstay of the UK fashion scene.
The show reflects a renaissance in the cultural identity of UK fashion and re-found pride into what this country produces. It’s about time too – UK design and cultural aesthetics are lauded the world over yet often go unheralded on these shores. Take, by way of example, Paul Smith’s fashion empire – it has more than 200 outlets in Japan alone, a success borne out of the brand’s luxury appeal allied to its unique eccentricity and British quirkiness. There are dozens of similar examples.
As a dedicated fashion software company with over 100 UK fashion brands using our solution, the success of our company is strongly tied to the success of UK fashion. Every day we see at first hand the inherent creativity, innovation and dynamism of our fashion brand clients and anything that continues to promote, showcase and highlight the great fashion on these shores gets our full support.
We look forward to seeing you at the show! #MTM2017
