Margin London at HideYourArms

by Margin London on December 17, 2012

Margin London at HideYourArms

Margin London has been kindly invited to contribute to HideYourArms. We’ll be posting some news about up-and-coming labels that will be exhibiting at Margin in February 2013, which takes place on the 10th & 11th, but firstly we think we should introduce ourselves.

Started back in 2002 as an affordable platform for new designers, Margin is the longest-running independent trade exhibition in London. The show presents designer women’s and men’s tailoring and accessories, as well as streetwear for men and women, to invited store buyers and press.

The humble tee has long been a starting point for numerous labels, and we’ve seen many an exhibitor start off with a t-shirt offering which has grown over the seasons to include a full range of clothing. Supremebeing, Lazy Oaf, Seventyseven, Dephect, YourEyesLie, and many others all started at Margin with tees before growing their stockist base and extending their range to include clothing, bags, jewellery (or jewelry for Americans!), and hats.

Margin has been providing a launchpad for brands to meet with key buyers and press for 10 years to date, and 2012 marked a decade of exhibitions.

Margin London Streetwear Fashion Tradeshow Exhibition 10 Year Book

To commemorate the occasion, a limited-edition 10 year book was printed for visitors to the show, but it’s also available to download as a PDF or as a super-interactive book for iPad. The iPad version features extensive galleries of previous seasons, as well as videos, and can be downloaded here.

Here’s the link to posts where HideYourArms mentions Margin including brand updates from when they last visited (well overdue for a revisit but Andy & the HideYourArms London correspondent are returning in February 2013!).

Margin is an intimate showroom exhibition in a white gallery space in the heart of Central London, and the only tradeshow in the UK where buyers and press can discover new & emerging design talent (most making their debut launch).  When we say “NEW”, we don’t just mean new to Margin, we mean brand-spanking, never-been-seen-before, new!

[Just a little something to calm you down on this crazy shopping day]

I think that pretty much every e-mail I’ve received for the past few days has involved some kind of coupon or deal or percentage, and I’ve tried to cover each one in a post, but there’s just too many, so here’s a bumper sized post that has a looooad (15, to be precise) of deals in it.


1. Mimoco

3. 40% off at Local Celebrity by using the coupon code BLACKISBEAUTIFUL, valid until Sunday.

——————————–


5. Even though they’re British, Urban Retro are getting into the coupon code madness, use code XMAS25 to get 25% off your order this weekend.

——————————–


6. There seems to be a bit of small print to this one (as you can see at the bottom of the image), but 30% is still a good deal, especially when you can knock that off items which are already on sale. Also, WEGOBBLE is a pretty cute coupon code, well done Tobi.

——————————–


7. Fred Flare are offering free shipping this weekend (which is a $7.95 value) by using the coupon code MO, sure, it’s not the biggest deal on the list, but at least you can’t complain about the shipping prices!

——————————–


8. You’ll have to be quick to catch this one at Random Shirts:

——————————–


17. Johnny Cupcake‘s offering for Black Friday this year is a 20% coupon code (SANTA) that you can use online, or print off the coupon above and take it into any of the JC bricks & mortar stores, which is a cool addition. Valid until December 2nd.

——————————–


18. This one isn’t just for Black Friday since it goes on until January 1st, but its a decent deal so I thought I’d include it. £3/$6 off each Bang Bang T-Shirts tee ain’t half bad, and remember, there’s free worldwide shipping on all orders.

20. Paper Root Clothing have got up to 50% off their shirts and also a few $5 grab bags, no fancy schmancy coupon code necessary.

——————————–
21. You’ve only got 4 hours before this code goes dead. Hunty from MySoti got drunk, no, really, and he set up a coupon code for 20% off your order, it’s drunkenmadness and it will be gone soon, so if you’ve had your eye on something over there this is a good opportunity to pick it up.

——————————-


22. Get 20% off at Catastrophic Clothing with the coupon code BLACKFRIDAY… obviously. *Now running through to Monday.

——————————-


23. hoodie People have knocked 25% off their Upper Playground (mens here, womens here) range, I don’t know what the expiration date is on it, but the coupon code is upsalehoodies.

——————————–


24. Now that is a good deal to end this post on, Glarkware have got some very, very, cheap items, and you don’t even need a coupon code!

Have a great weekend everyone!
