Chic was created in July 1994 at the request of the UK's largest fashion accessory brands who needed a dedicated trade fair for the industry at a time that suited their production cycle and at a very reasonable cost.
As the UK's main luggage event, January Chic also hosts the British Luggage Show... It is internationally acclaimed as the must-visit show for buyers of travel goods, sports bags and business cases.
Chic is the UK's only trade fair dedicated to every type of fashion accessory, including bags, jewellery, gloves, umbrellas, wallets, briefcases, jewellery cases, luggage, man bags, travel accessories, holdalls, back packs, business accessories etc...
Chic is also the only UK fashion event to be held at the beginning of the retail selling season allowing buyers to buy precisely what they need by category / current stock holding: maximising budgets and minimising mark-downs.
We are well known as the show where serious buyers attend to spend, where costs are maintained at the very lowest level so exhibitors can make a good return on their investment, where buyers feel comfortable and relaxed and enjoy free parking, high quality food and beverages at high street prices, modern facilities and above all a very warm welcome.
