See Six New Trends that Will Be On Show at Top Drawer 2018 this Weekend

This weekend sees the arrival of the Top Drawer trade show and with it 6 new trends for 2018. Always a hit with retailers, trends are a great way to get a sneak peek at what our favourite shops will be showcasing in the months ahead.

Today we’re taking a look at six of the trends that are predicted to be big in shopping this year; Easy Living, California Dreaming, Dark Lux, Wanderlust, Geometrics and Pattern Clash. For each of the 2018 trends I’ve chosen 5 exhibitors whose design-led products are perfect examples of the trends defining themes.
