TLTF is the biggest industry show within the UK and one of the leading European exhibitions for fashion fabrics, accessories, print studios and vintage garments,” said John Kelley, Texfusion – New York organizer.  “Our database of European manufacturers is complete and some of the most prestigious mills are exhibiting with us since the very beginning. We have a close relationship with our exhibitors and some of them asked us to organize a show in New York, as the U.S. market is very important for them, from here the idea of Texfusion – New York. TLTF format is very successful in London and we are sure that will have the same reception in the US. We are very excited about this new project.”
