Leading streetwear and sustainable menswear show Jacket Required received positive and upbeat feedback during this week’s show with the new curated layout working well for exhibitors and buyers alike. Response to the show’s move to its new Saatchi Gallery home and increased focus on sustainability, premium and tailoring sectors was equally well-received. A steady volume of orders was taken, with visitors in attendance including End Clothing, Asos, Article, John Lewis, Urban Outfitters, The Project Store, Filati, Stuarts, Fenwick, Natterjacks, Sefton, Anthropology and Harvey Nichols.
Showroom A, dedicated to a host of sustainable brands including Dashel, Conscious Step, Komodo, United Change Makers, Thalassophy, Revolution and Raeburn, maintained a buzzy atmosphere throughout the two-day show. Christopher Raeburn said: “We’re a really proud British brand. We’ve been going now for 11 years and we’ve found that there’s so much more conversation around what we’re doing around responsible design; the idea of remaking, recycling and reducing. We’re so proud that Jacket Required has been so supportive in what we’re doing, it’s a really natural alignment. We’re really pleased and proud with the space that we have here, and we’ve already met some really good people this morning, so, so far, so good. For us [exhibiting at Jacket Required] is a bit of a no-brainer. It’s an opportunity to meet directly with all of the amazing British stores and press that we have around the country and build the momentum really.”
Jacket Required will be making its debut in SW3 from the 22nd - 23rd July 2020, offering showroom spaces for Sustainable, Contemporary, Streetwear and Tailoring sectors.
