Sourcing your components
This can be one of the most frustrating and time-consuming jobs for you. There are hundreds of companies all over Europe selling everything you need. There are still quite a few in the UK as well.
There are two major trade shows in Paris that specialise in swimwear and underwear fabrics and trimmings. Click the names below to be taken to the websites.
Mare di Moda
Here you will get everything under one roof. Interfiliere is particularly good as it features another trade show called Mode City which features ready to wear swimwear and underwear from top brands from all over the world so you can see what colours and styles are trending next season.
Other options are to ask your designer, use the internet or ask us. Beware of companies that sell products by retail, as the prices are usually far higher than trade prices. These companies are most useful for sampling resources.
