If you are looking for designer clothing then pop along to the London Fashion Weekend in February. There is many designers and I'm sure many will be interested in someone proposing to sell their goods. Also the website - www.londonfashionweek.co.uk - should have a list of exhibitor at the fashion weekend. Otherwise a trade fair like Pure or if you got the cash - pop over to Paris - there is a clothing trade fair which coincides with Paris Fashion Week.

Get a copy of Drapers Record - it should have some info on these matters.

For shop decoration have a look at some stores selling designer clothes. Its probably easier to keep the look simple so that the clothes are easy to see.

Hope this is of use. Put a reply if you can't find info for Pure, etc..
