Pure London, the UK’s leading trade fashion buying event taking place at Olympia, London from the 17th – 19th July 2022, offers an extensive international programme showcasing fashion collections from over 30 countries including 28 brands from Poland.
With a strong and growing fashion sector, Poland’s micro and small fashion enterprises have developed in recent years, pushing forward with innovation and creativity. Products are now appreciated on global markets, including high quality clothing and footwear, and attractive amber jewellery. Polish products are modern, carefully made and have an attractive price point.
Brands in Poland have benefited from the Polish Development Fund Group’s (PFR) ‘Go To Brand’ Funding, which has offered to subsidise 50% to 85% of the cost of exhibiting at Pure London to Polish brands. The Ministry of Economic Development and Technology of the Republic of Poland promotes native brand products and works to strengthen the image of Poland and the Polish Economy in the world.
The Ministry of Economic Development and Technology Press Office says: “The fashion industry contributes to building a strong and recognisable Polish Economy Brand. It offers many products appreciated on global markets, its technology has developed in recent years and the brands have become increasingly innovative and creative. The development of the industry has been supported for many years by the Ministry of Economic Development and Technology, and the measures taken are aimed at strengthening its global competitive position.
“These include assistance in promoting the industry at major trade fairs held e.g. in the UAE, the USA, Ukraine, Germany, Italy, Spain, and in July at the Pure London in the UK, providing a space for entrepreneurs to establish new business contacts and maintain existing ones. These activities are financed by the EU project ‘Promotion of the economy on the basis of Polish product brands – Polish Economy Brand’, implemented by the Ministry. It is accompanied by the Go to Brand programme implemented by the Polish Agency for Enterprise Development. Join us at Pure London to learn more about the Polish fashion offer and visit the Polish information and promotion stand.”
Melissa Ramage, European Development Manager, Pure London adds: “The recent months have been a time of new challenges for the entire fashion industry. Also, companies had to increase their online presence and adapt to the new needs of consumers. However, it is difficult to imagine the fashion industry without meetings, shows and exhibitions. I’m really happy that this proved right with numerous Polish companies attending alongside the Polish National Stand. We are very glad to welcome 28 Polish companies presenting their brands and contemporary designs among global fashion brands.”
