Thank you to all who came along and participated. We’ve created a group on our network, to allow exhibitors and visitors to the Ethical Fashion SOURCE Expo to connect, liaise and share information.


Don’t miss the Designer Pavilion – a showcase of some of the most innovative designers pioneering in sustainable sourcing from all over the world.

Designer Pavilion exhibitors are carefully selected by our panel on the basis of innovation and skill in both design and sourcing practices, and we go out of our way to include designers which would otherwise find it difficult to access a platform for their work. Every year, one outstanding designer is awarded a space in the Pavilion and promoted throughout the Expo. (SOURCE Expo Designer Award)
