We’re just days away from the opening of Top Drawer’s SS23 edition! The industry’s most anticipated event is set to once again open its doors to visitors and exhibitors from the 15 – 17 January and is absolutely bursting with fabulous products to discover. Here are the top five reasons you won’t want to miss the season’s biggest buying event: 


Location, location, location!  

Held in the heart of the bustling city of London, Top Drawer will take centre stage this Sunday as they kick off their latest show at the Olympia. With great transport links to the venue, buyers and visitors can attend the show with ease and discover a host of unique products, new names and design inspiration for the season ahead.  


Get a sneak peek at the biggest trends  

Partnering once again with The Better Trends Co, attendees can discover an exclusive trend forecast as they unveil two of the biggest trends for the season ahead in full at the show.   

“Rhythmic form” is a trend that emphasises the use of repetitive shapes and patterns to create a sense of visual harmony within a space and usher in a feeling of calm. By utilising a variety of materials and textures, this timeless trend can be easily incorporated into any space and is just what we need as we enter 2023. “Modern psychedelic”, on the other hand, is a trend characterised by bold, vibrant colours and patterns that evoke a sense of defiant, unapologetic joy. This style often features a mix of geometric shapes and organic curves, as well as a variety of textures and materials to create an eye-catching look that is sure to turn heads. 


Nine unique show sectors to discover  

Top Drawer’s S/S23 show is set to be THE destination for buyers looking to redefine and revitalise their offerings for the season ahead. Across the show’s nine curated sectors – Home, Wellbeing, Gift, Fashion, Food Emporium, Craft, Greetings Cards & Stationery, Play and Launchpad – buyers will be able to discover the very best of everything from classic giftware and one-of-a-kind accessories right though to sustainable alternatives and budget-friendly finds for their new season offering.  


All of the industry’s most exciting names under one roof  

Over 500+ brands from the UK and abroad will be joining us for this latest edition, including the likes of Aery, British Colour Standard, CABAIA, Inside Out Toys, Kind Bag, Lifeguard Press + Ban.do, LIGA, Ohh Deer, Poppy + Ted, Reeves & Reeves, Roger La Borde, Scream Pretty, Swole Panda, The Bottled Baking Co. and Wanderlust Paper Co. to name just a few. Alongside top brands and household names, Top Drawer is proud to be a platform for promising new talent - TD’s “Launchpad” sector, which made its debut during the SS22 edition, puts fresh faces in the spotlight, allowing them to network with high-calibre buyers and build lasting connections within the industry. For this edition, we’ll also see the return of the show’s partnership with the University of Arts London who have been hand-selected to showcase their products and are eager to increase their brand exposure.    


Perfect timing  

By taking place in early January, Top Drawer opens its doors at the perfect time for buyers looking to refresh, revive and redefine their collections for the year ahead, and even get a head start on their selections for the industry’s all-important fourth quarter.
