we’re feeling retrospective +

“As a small and independent label, Margin gave us the ability to develop our first connections with press, buyers and other small labels.”
“Margin has allowed us to grow organically where otherwise it would be easy to be overlooked in bigger shows.
We pride ourselves in being a bit different and I think that has been a good mix at Margin.”
“It’s very hard to compete with big brands spending power but Margin gives you the ability to compete on an even keel where everyone is given the same level of attention so you don’t get lost.”
“At Margin you can make personal relationships with buyers and there are a loyal following of shops that attend. This allows you to build up a natural long term relationship that can make a solid foundation to grow.
There really isn’t another show available in London for new emerging labels.”
