Margin exists to promote young upscale streetwear and directional tailoring
labels. The trade fair exhibition Margin London was established to help new labels reach a wider buying and press audience. Organised by Odysseas Constantine, the trade shows Margin London were created out of necessity.
Retailers travel the world looking for "the next big thing" but are never going to find it at a fashion tradeshow
whose costs prohibit fresh talent which is where the Margin upscale streetwear exhibition plays a vital part.
The main drive of Margin London was to establish a show where new fashion brands and "up and coming" design talent
could find an affordable platform to exhibit at Margin London and expose their collections with a directional edge to the UK & international fashion trade and press. Margin is a fashion exhibition in London presenting fashion collections from fashion labels based in London and internationally.
Margin in London is now a firm must-visit fixture on the international trade show and fashion fair calendar for directional independent boutiques, multiples & department stores across the UK, Europe and Japan looking to source pure design talent outside of the mainstream +
The London Fashion Exhibition in London is long-standing and has been running since August 2002.
The February 2013 edition marks the occasion of the 23rd show of the Fashion Exhibition in London and marks 11 years of Margin. Margin is a clothing trade show taking place in the UK in London in February 2013.
Most exhibitors, menswear and womenswear, are new designers launching their ranges for the first time globally, some of whom treat their tailoring ranges of clothing, including jackets, with a couture-like attention to detail, personally creating their pure vision, stitch by stitch, with the required skill set for directional menswear and womenswear. New brands at Margin means brand new, other shows generally mean new to them: Margin means new to the world and making their global debut.
