Scoop claims earlier dates are a winner as exhibitors increase

Scoop International has claimed another record turnout after featuring 240 UK and international labels at its fourth edition at the Saatchi Gallery.
 
The boutique fashion show from 8 to 10 July reported a 10 per cent increase in buyers on its previous February show, but declined to disclose specific numbers. Scoop moved its dates from August to July this year in order to avoid conflicting with the 2012 London Olympic Games.
 
The MD and founder Karen Radley claimed the earlier dates meant Scoop was the first show in the UK fashion calendar for Spring/Summer 2013, a move welcomed by buyers and exhibitors. Several designer labels opened a large number of new accounts during the event from both the UK and overseas, she said.
 
“The fourth edition of Scoop International has been the busiest yet, with an increase from 180 to more than 240 labels showcasing, proving that Scoop is firmly on the international fashion industry’s calendar,” Radley said.
 
“Visitor numbers have risen year-on-year with buyer attendance from department stores, multi-brand and independent boutiques.”
 
Buyers in attendance came from Harrods, Matches, Fenwick Stores, Fortnum and Mason, Liberty and other retailers.
