Store open 9am-5pm
XYZ EXCHANGE Materials Market 11am-5pm (49 Poland Street - gallery space)
XYZ EXCHANGE will continue the dialogue from their Fashion Revolution Week event in April 2019. This is an opportunity for fashion professionals to exchange knowledge about materials, fabrics and how to implement them more responsibility.
This Materials Market is curated by material experts Ma-tt-er. Part one, from 11am to 3pm, is a materials drop-in and exchange session. Creatives will be able to drop in to explore a focused library of unique, new and interesting materials to look at, touch and consider, with Ma-tt-er on hand to give one-to-one advice.
From 4pm, Ma-tt-er will host a conversation and Q&A exchange with designer brands Phoebe English, Raeburn and Hazel Stark, materials agents The Sustainable Angle, fashion law firm Sheridans and progressive concept store SWIM XYZ. The conversation will start out with a focus on materials and broaden to include a consideration of systems, too.
As space is limited, this event is for brands, designers and industry professionals only. For press guest list spaces, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org. There will be a first come first serve RSVP system for attendees opened up on the 2nd of October.
