LONDONEDGE NEWBIES SPAN CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES MARKET


A flock of new exhibitors will be seen at Londonedge and Londoncentral in February hailing from both the UK and overseas. New products will span clothing, jewellery, accessories and giftware with steampunk and tattoo-inspired designs growing in popularity.

 

Birmingham-based jewellery and accessories company Bow and Crossbones are now in their second year of trade and Londonedge will be their first trade show.

 

 

Designer and manufacturer Camilla Huggins said: “I started making pieces for myself but soon realised there was a market for my designs. At the show I’ll be looking for independent boutiques who are looking for unique products.” Her vintage and kitsch jewellery is inspired by horror, tattoos, rockabilly and steampunk.
