LBfw will be expertly and strictly curated to represent fully the interests of this niche sector. Buyers will now have the opportunity to source the latest collections from leading brands and designer labels in bridalwear, occasionwear, menswear and accessories in just one visit, once a year, in one calm and convenient venue.

“I was honoured to have been asked by the leading bridal labels in the UK to curate and assemble the first London Bridal Fashion Week (LBfw) and thrilled that we have succeeded in making it reality. More than 50 collections will be showcased, some indeed unveiled for the first time!
Everything, to the very last detail, has been beautifully designed to enhance the visitor experience and to facilitate trading.”

‘LBfw’s future is very much determined by the sector it represents. LBfw is a vehicle, a trade platform for the industry, to be grown both nationally and internationally, by us as event organisers but also by all the stakeholders in the sector. Our commitment to the industry is a simple one: we will always listen to you and we will play an active role in helping you achieve your goals.’

I love organising events, helping brands to trade and grow. It is very rewarding, especially when you have seen the process from the beginning when they first start to grand unveil. I still get the same buzz from organising an event, the wedding industry gives me great joy and inspiration.’
