Just walk 5 minutes and you’ll find an array of cafes and restaurants offering cuisine to satisfy any cravings. The BDC offers Londonedge, it’s buyers & exhibitors a beautiful, sociable environment in which to do business”.

"Islington is a beautiful setting for LondonEdge; we love being at the BDC because it’s right in the heart of everything. We’re a short ride away from all of the key London districts; Camden, Shoreditch, Soho… these places are a hot bed for the fashion creatives and influencers that we represent."

The building’s architecture with the beautiful vaulted glass roof, based upon the iconic Crystal Palace, (designed by Joseph Paxton for the Great Exhibition of 1851), allows beams of natural light to pour into the venue. The multi level space places every designer on a pedestal, where they can show off their collections to hundreds of visitors, creating an exciting labyrinth of clothing, accessories and home-wares.
The BDC will carry on the momentum built up at the February show which saw a record breaking number of buyers, press and bloggers attend.The main hall will be full of innovative spaces accommodating all our exhibitors including world leading lifestyle and fashion brands as well as emerging new designers.
