Premium fashion trade show Jacket Required is introducing a womenswear edit at its s/s 18 edition, held 26 to 27 July at the Truman Brewery in London.
Having established itself as a key menswear destination on the international buying calendar, selected brands will introduce a womenswear edit at the show, providing a platform for its existing exhibitor and visitor profile’s female counterparts, driving the growing trend for sophisticated street and casual clothing for women.
“Bringing a selection of womenswear to Jacket Required has been something under discussion with brands and buyers for a number of seasons, and it now feels like the time is right,” says Alice Elliott, event director. “We have a number of labels which are extremely relevant to the women’s market as they stand, and certain exhibitors have brought a small selection of product for this market to showcase to relevant stores who already visit the show. The upcoming edition of Jacket Required will see this concept expand beyond a uni-sex offering, and allow our brands to present a strong womenswear edit of its spring/summer 2018 collection to targeted retailers.”
Jacket Required offers a carefully edited line-up of international brands across apparel, footwear, accessories and lifestyle products, with womenswear collections from the likes of Alpha Industries, Armor Lux, Birkenstock, Clarks Originals, Cole Haan, Cuisse de Grenouille, Deadwood, Dickies, (Eat Dust) Girls of Dust, Ellesse, Fracap, Le Coq Sportif, Lee Jeans, Red Wing, Sandqvist, Santa Cruz, Schott NYC, Teva and Wrangler already confirmed.
The show is open exclusively to buyers. For more information and pre-registration visit www.jacket-required.com.
