UNITING GLOBAL MANUFACTURERS, BUYERS & BRANDS IN LONDON
Pure London, the UK’s leading fashion trade event, announces the launch of a new sourcing event, Pure Origin. Aimed at uniting global suppliers, buyers and brands in London’s busiest fashion trade hub, Pure Origin will bring together all aspects of fashion sourcing and manufacturing under one roof.
Held in the heart of London alongside Pure London and Pure Man, Pure Origin is the gateway for international manufacturers to break into the UK market, meet with thousands of visitors from the fashion retail ecosystem and be a part of a market whose growth rate is leading across Europe.
Pure Origin will offer a unique opportunity for connected and efficient business by facilitating easy access to global suppliers and fuelling networking and trade. Over 40 manufacturers from around the world, including Blueberry Impex and Timeswell Textile from Hong Kong and Ribeiro & Matos from Portugal have already confirmed. While an upsurge in British manufacturing is reflected in a strong UK contingency at the show with Oxford Blue, LS Manufacturing Ltd, Gil Design Studio, Kalopsia Collective and BeFab Be Creative UK signed up.

We are excited to announce the latest client to the GR portfolio, WITLOFT. Over the past three years WITLOFT has become known for its leather aprons that have been worn and loved by the world’s most credible chefs and primetime TV household names. Jamie Oliver, The Hairy Bikers, Gennaro Contaldo and Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown have all been spotted in the aprons as well as a range of influential baristas, barbers and grill masters.
WITLOFT was launched in 2014 by cooking enthusiast, Frank Abbenhuis in his garden shed in Amsterdam. He was looking for a beautiful, durable apron and realised what he wanted didn’t exist. He learnt all he could about leather design and created a prototype to protect himself and his clothes in a durable fashion. As soon as he put on and started to use his prototype, he recognised what the potential it could have. Abbenhuis got straight back to work, designing, fine-tuning and producing the range of WITLOFT products that are available today.
This Christmas they are also launching a limited edition golden apron exclusively for women – the perfect Christmas gift for any chef of the house, or budding baker!
This week we are thrilled to finally be able to share Sugarhill Boutique’s long-planned collaborations with charities The Born Free Foundation, Plan International UK and Whoopsadaisy Brighton. Rather than just supporting one charity with a t-shirt, the brand opted for choosing three very different but very worthy causes to support, each with their own uniquely designed t-shirt or Breton. Sugarhill’s aim with their #WearandCare campaign is that charity t-shirts can be chic, stylish and make a real change in the world.
Born Free’s style is a striped tee featuring an adorable embroidered giraffe motif, £10 of the sale of each of these tees goes directly to Born Free’s Giraffe programme. Plan International take the Breton style with the slogan ‘Let Love Rule’, with £10 from each style going towards the empowerment of young children, particularly girls, who are oppressed by violence, poverty and discrimination across the world. Lastly, Whoopsadaisy is a charity local to Sugarhill’s home town of Brighton and their sweet rainbow motif t-shirt will aid the charity’s vital work with young children from Brighton and the surrounding areas who suffer from cerebral palsy and other motor disorders.
Launching today, the #WearandCare campaign by Sugarhill aims to take their styles and designs beyond their seaside home and use them to raise awareness and donations for the charities’ conservation, humanitarian and educational projects. Each style will donate £10 from the sale of each piece directly to the t-shirt’s respective charity. Sugarhill aim to continue the project throughout the seasons and continue to dedicating a large part of their business and brand to helping causes very close to their hearts.
We’re so proud to be working with Sugarhill on this campaign and can’t wait to see everyone enjoying their tees while doing a little good in the world….
Earlier this month Grand Designs Live celebrated its 13th year in London! This incredible show boasted over 500 exhibitors spread across six key sections, spanning Build, Kitchens, Bathrooms, Technology, Gardens and Interiors; and saw London ExCeL transformed into an inspiring hub for those looking to make home improvements on any scale!
Hosted by Grand Designs guru Kevin McCloud, the nine day exhibition offered visitors the chance to explore the latest products and trends, to gather insights and guidance for upcoming projects, and to generally soak up the creative atmosphere and become inspired!
One of the whole team’s favourite features this season was the Grand Room Sets competition, which celebrated stunning interiors, this year with the theme of ‘TV’. Six final designs were chosen from the pool of entrants with a diverse and creative range of themes; from Breaking Bad, to Homes By The Sea, to Game Of Thrones and beyond! Oaki Designs were awarded first place with their ‘Blackadder II’ themed room, although we’d have a very hard time picking our favourite!
Another beacon of inspiration for visitors, and Good Results PR was a new feature for 2017, the Grand Shed Project, sponsored by AXA Insurance, provided shed-loads of inspiration to visitors, inviting five interior and garden designers from across the country, who transformed five standard-issue 8 feet by 10 feet wooden Walton’s sheds into stylish garden refuges, ranging from a Sewing shed to a bedroom. The competition, judged by Kevin McCloud, was won by Dappled Interiors’ unique and atmospheric creation, entitled ‘Reading Snug’.
Team favourite shed ‘South Beach Miami’ is our new style inspiration for the summer – who wouldn’t want a place to hand out with friend, complete with a bar, palm-print wallpaper, and neon lights!
Just when we’re dreaming of long summer days in time for the bank holiday, Universal Resorts have announced they are opening our dream destination (for any time of the year) next month; Dhigali!
This stunning resort pairs contemporary luxury with the pure natural beauty of the Maldives; located in the charmingly remote Raa Atoll, Dhigali will bring modern minimalist design to this isle of pure beauty.
Our very favourite part of this gorgeous hideaway has got to be Haali Bar, the ultimate sunset bar with a view! Complete with traditional Maldivian style thatching and sweeping views out over the Indian Ocean, this is perfect place to enjoy a freshly mixed cocktail at sundown.
Surrounded by a pristine coral reef and crystal clear lagoon, this 5 star sanctuary invites guests to cast away in unspoilt luxury and rich Maldivian culture…and we know where we’d like to be this weekend…
We’re busy here at Good Results preparing for Pure London’s next edition, returning with a whole new look and theme ‘A Life Less Ordinary.’ This year’s show consumes itself with an adventurous and vibrant theme that can only be crafted from within.

Taking place from 24 – 26 July 2016 at Olympia London, where over 800 brands will showcase their Spring Summer 17 collections, 14 catwalks will take to the stage and over 25 key industry leaders will host seminars on the latest topics within fashion and retail.
Pure London have also confirmed a panel discussion of four experts from three disciplines to analyse the political, economic and industry implications of the UK’s exit from the EU at the forthcoming edition of the event, 24 – 26 July 2016. The highly topical seminar will include recommended strategies for weathering the brewing economic storm, short term tactics for managing risk, plus the chance to learn more about the opportunities which could arise as a result of the momentous Brexit decision.
The season Pure London has teamed up with The Guardian to deliver a series of one hour masterclasses for the fashion industry at the Spring Summer 17 edition in July. These highly acclaimed Guardian Masterclasses will take place at Pure London’s Spring Summer 17 show 24 – 26 July, targeting a range of areas in the fashion industry from starting a fashion business to reaching social media goals. Industry speaker Amy Hobson, a social media trainer and partner at SocialB will host the masterclasses alongside Anna Popvich; London-based fashion designer and owner of self-titled fashion label.

Legendary portrait and fashion photographer, David Bailey will be joining us at The Photography Show’s Super Stage on Saturday 19th March; he’ll be discussing his unparalleled career in the fashion and photographic industry with Sandy Nairne to an audience of pros and amateurs alike. Speaking to The Telegraph’s Mick Brown ahead of his Super Stage appearance, Bailey divulges his thoughts on the peak of his career in the Swinging Sixties and his life photographing some of the world’s greatest stars. This doesn’t give Bailey any delusions of grandeur, he tells Brown: “I can relate to everybody. I can go up to somebody in the street and within 10 minutes know their whole life, and they’ll want to come to the studio and have their picture taken”. The photographer will be speaking to a small audience at Birmingham’s NEC in a rare live interview covering all topics from photographing for Vogue back in the sixties to his most recent projects.
For Bailey’s insight on Salvador Dali, photographing everyone from the Krays to the Queen and his personal life not behind the lens see the article below:

It’s here! The official Chloe Lewis Collection for Little Mistress.com has landed and we can’t wait to tell you all about it…
It’s been an incredibly exciting week at GR as we prepared for the launch of TOWIE favourite Chloe Lewis’s Spring Summer 2016 collection. Last year the Chloe Lewis AW15 Edit featured glittering dresses, cosy knits and bang on-trend pieces, so now we’re even more excited for cool colour blocks, soft tailoring and even some vintage-inspired pieces for the SS16 drop!
Chloe designed each piece herself, her personal interest and love for all things fashion helped her to inject some passion into the project. We loved watching her strut her stuff on the catwalk at Clothes Show in December and now we are all about Chloe’s model potential in this vibrant Cape Town shoot, showcasing all the best pieces from her collection.
There really is something for everyone from each side of the range. We love the pastel and khaki tones in the Girls on Film range, figure-hugging and glamorous Paper Dolls dresses; we can’t wait to rock the show-stopping Little Mistress gowns in silver metallics, floral lace and decadent embroidery.
The Essex girl’s flair for fashion definitely came through in her designs as drawing on catwalk trends while keeping some key classic pieces is Chloe’s go-to style, we think it couldn’t be more perfect for this Style Icon in the making. Now excuse us, we’re off to do some summer wardrobe shopping…
The collection will be followed with two further seasonal drops in March and April, we can’t wait to share the rest of her beautiful collection!

If you watched last night’s episode of The Apprentice, you would have seen teams Conexus and Versatile descend on the National Pet Show, which took place at ExCeL London earlier this year, a challenge which saw them go head-to-head, selling pet products to the show’s visitors.
Amongst the brands selected for the task was Tigga Towers, with their luxury product range which features their popular cat towers. Santos the cat even made an appearance!!
The teams battled it out, with Versatile choosing to sell walking pet balloons and luxury dog beds, while Conexus opted for the cat towers. Team Versatile may have won the challenge, but we think both teams did a great job! And we don’t know about anyone else, but we’re sad to see Ruth go!
Today we’re loving these super cute Halloween pieces from our playful beauty brand Mad Beauty… Pumpkin lip glosses and compact mirrors, offer an inspired alternative treat to candy and chocolate this spooky season.

We were excited to seeing so many brides out in force planning their big day….trying on dresses, sampling cake, sipping on bubbly and celebrating with their friends and family.
Being surrounded by so much prettiness made it impossible to choose our favourite thing about the shows this season, but one highlight had to be seeing the latest bridal trends and beautiful dresses on The Catwalk.
We caught up with our friends Jeff Banks, Sassi Holford and the lovely Kat Williams from Rock n Roll Bride in London, were joined by the fabulous Ian Stuart and Charlotte Balbier in Birmingham and even Gok Wan popped into Manchester (more news to follow).
