SHOWCASE Ireland is reminding trade buyers in Offaly to ‘save a date’ to attend Showcase 2012 which takes place in the RDS from January 22 to 25.

One of the best boutique shows in the calendar, Showcase is the foremost place for Irish and international buyers to discover unique, design-led fashion and knitwear, jewellery, Irish made craft, gift and interiors and products not available at other shows.

More than €20 million in sales orders are expected over the four days of Showcase 2012, as ‘Ireland’s Creative Expo’ goes from strength to strength.

Now in its 36th year, the 2012 event will feature 350 of the country’s leading designers, manufacturers and craftspeople. It is expected to attract more than 5,500 retail buyers from Ireland and over 17 countries around the world including North America, continental Europe and Japan, seeking out the best of Irish creativity.

One of the most exciting new developments at this year’s showcase will be Showcase Fashion 2012 - a bold presentation of the best of Irish fashion with a heritage slant from Irish Designer-makers, designers and manufacturers. The initiative will consist of a dramatic runway show at 6pm on Sunday, January 22, in the RDS displaying a selected seminal work from Ireland’s leading and up and coming fashion creative.
