From 16-17 July, the latest collections will be presented at the British baby and children’s fair at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. Bubble London wants to maintain its position as a starter platform. That is why the trade fair places a special focus on a dynamic selection of new exhibitors.

The trade fair is suitable for retailers who want to make inroads in the children’s clothing sector. An informative seminar program will be held at the trade fair to address this. It will be run by industry experts such as Abigail and Chloe Baldwin, Fiona Coleman, and Dan Conboy. The following topics will be covered: Business of Branding, Trends, and Online Retailing.

 The discussion panel at Bubble should provide a competent insight into children’s fashion retail. Speakers will include Franck van Hiuzen, Fiona Coleman, and Nick Bassi of Childsplay and Blue Almonds. Izabella Minkiewicz will report on and share her experiences as an executive in this sector. The panel discussion theme will be “What influence does interior design have on the growth of a company?” The event will be moderated by Holly Kirkwood, the editor of “Absolutely Mama”.

Bubble newcomers

The fashion label Barn of Monkeys is one of the newcomer brands. Based in London, the label offers sustainable fashion for boys and girls made from organic raw materials. The British brand Cooee Kids works along the same lines, having decided to produce its pieces exclusively from 100% cotton. The Carlie Grace label focuses on clothes for girls up to eight years of age. Their designs are intended to express individuality and fun.

In contrast, the Eva & Indie brand offers powerful, playful prints. The patterns are handmade and their strong presence gives the brand a characteristic note.

The Scottish knitwear brand Tout Petit will present children’s accessories and gifts in merino wool at Bubble. Above all, the influence of highland culture is visible in their selection from the SS18 collection. At Bubble, the label Ciao Bimba will introduce an imaginative selection of dolls, outfits, and accessories from natural fibres.

 Highlights of the Bubble Show

The winner of Bubble’s well-known Rising Star competition will be awarded the “Retail Award.” By choosing the “stand-out competitor”, visitors can recognise a particularly outstanding booth. The team at Maggie & Rose will take care of the children’s entertainment, while giving exhibitors a preview of the new “At Home” collection.

Spun Candy will provide sweet treats. In addition, visitors will have the opportunity to have their portrait taken by the Buttercrumble company. “Monty de Maestro” will provide entertainment for the children. Music workshops and book signings should ensure the little ones stay in a good mood.

The trade fair will be take place on Sunday, 16 July from 9:30 am to 6:00 pm and on Monday, 17 July from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm, at the Business Design Centre in London’s Islington district.
