- “The catwalks at Pure London are just so inspirational, and you always learn so much from them," – Zoe Anne Jones, Harrods;
- “We come to Pure London every season... and we're always looking for something new and different! Our primary reason for attending is to make orders, but it's always really interesting to get an overview of the colours and trends for the season ahead as well,” – Megan Calcutt, Cordelia James;
- “I’m here to discover new brands and to make contact with some names that are already on our books. This is the first time I’ve actually been to Pure and there’s a couple of brands here that I’ve been watching on Instagram that I wanted to come and see, and we’ve also had a couple of meetings with some existing brands as well. Trade shows are always good because you never know when you’re going to find those little undiscovered gems which is something I’m quite passionate about,“ – Anthony Kitterman, ASOS;
Pure London has the support of major players in the fashion industry such as Fashion Network, CO, Fashion Jobs, Attire Accessories, ASBCI, iHKiB, Conscious Fashion Campaign, Drapers, and Fashion Square Marketing.
