The Suffolk Show will be rolling out the pink carpet as independent clothing labels provide a draw for the event’s dedicated fashionistas.
The show’s Fifth Avenue hosts what’s billed as the county’s biggest pop-up shopping experience, including a range of local retailers that won’t be found on the high street.
Suffolk-based skateboard and surf brand Hoax returns with its popular range of t-shirts and hoodies. Singer Ed Sheeran is an ambassador for the brand and is often seen wearing its clothing on stage.
Jewellery designer Emily Mortimer, another celebrity favourite, will be making her third appearance at the show with bold statement pieces from her Suffolk studio.
They will be joined by racehorse auctioneers Tattersalls, based in Newmarket, and its branded clothing range, including jackets, gilets and polo shirts.
Norfolk-based milliner Christiane Edmonson will be there with her range of hats, fascinators and bespoke accessories, and British watchmakers Morris Richardson will be showcasing its luxury watches and straps, with a distinctive range in Harris Tweed. Other new brands to look out for this year include Simply Murano with its handmade glass Murano jewellery from Venice, and Oscar & French with its handmade shabby-chic clothing, bed linen and cushions.
Local favourites include Phoebe & Flo and its unique gifts and homewares, Woodbridge-based Laura Jane Boutique, Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing, and Tilley & Grace of Aldeburgh with its range of jewellery, scarves and accessories. Country clothing brand Hicks & Brown from Bury St Edmunds will also be there, along with Butler Stewart with its timeless tweed tailoring.
Fifth Avenue head steward Angie Ashby-Hoare said: “Fifth Avenue proves that we have a real passion for fashion here in Suffolk. It is great to be able to showcase such a wide range of independent retailers and to shine a light on our brilliant local fashion brands. As Suffolk’s biggest pop-up shopping experience, we hope visitors find something unique and special to take home with them this year.”
