Every job has its perks and, for some of the luckier members of our company, these perks include jetting off to some of the most fashionable cities in the world on a journey of discovery – seeking the finest wedding lace and other bridal gown material to bring back home and add to our collection. This time, it is the most fashionable and romantic city of all that is calling, the wonderful and bohemian city of Paris, France. Ooh la la!
Though it is of course always fun to travel and experience a new city, our bridal material sourcing team are not idle while they are away! It isn't simply a case of browsing from here to there, looking at a few pieces of material and bringing them all home. Unlike many other, lesser, suppliers of wedding dress material and lace, we insist on maintaining a striking and unmissable presence at the most prestigious fashion and couture events along with all the biggest, most important trade shows.
Texworld is just one such show but has a significant spot on the bridal couture calendar. The show is known and takes place at many different venues around the world from New York to Istanbul but Paris is where its true heart resides and it is to Paris that the biggest, most influential names from both the continent and stateside will gather.
Around 600 international representatives of bridal material suppliers will be in attendance at Texworld, including Bridal Fabrics. Not only are we on the hunt for the freshest, most unique and luxurious lace and wedding dress embellishments to hit the market, we have also got lots of our own products to share and the show represents a fantastic opportunity for the very best to meet with the very best. The result? Better-dressed brides the world over!
Texworld takes place from Monday 12th to Wednesday 14th September and the show is open all day from 9am until 6pm. Due to popular demand, an extra day has been added on Thursday 15th September though the doors at Le Bourget in Paris’s Parc des Expositions will close at 4:30pm.
We do have many couture designer customers so if you are at Texworld then come and say hello!
