BEING one step ahead is essential for retail businesses and with the doors opening at Pulse on Sunday they offer unseen talent, cutting edge products, directional brands and up-to-the-minute trends and inspiration.

Show director Louise Morris (pictured) said: “We’ve brought together some of your favourite brands in one easy-to-shop location giving you first choice of those all-important neat season bestsellers.
“Co-located alongside Puse, Makers provides and inspiring edit of stand-out products from a talented new wave of designer-makers, and you can take a look at the upcoming design trends courtesy of our trend partner Unique Style Platform.”
Organised by Clarion Events, the show at London’s Olympia runs through until Tuesday, May 13-15, with an unmissable line-up for ShopTalk, their inspiring conference for independent retailers, with some big names from the retail industry.
Held within the ShopTalk Theatre the hour-long seminars include an interview with designer Sophie Conran, Heal’s senior buyer Kris Manalo speaking on new product design, V&A head of retail Sarah Sevier giving tips for curating products and merchandising on a budget; Ella D'Amato, chief commercial and partner officer with Notonthehighstreet, explaining how small businesses are stronger together, and Alex Schlagman, founding partner of Save The High Street, will be exploring what's working across the High Street today.
As the only dedicated design-led show in the summer season they are working with Unique Style Platform to offer up four exclusive trend predictions for the seasons ahead:
● Candied – multi-sensory, sickly sweet, hyper-real, unsettling, kitsch
● Library – intellectual, eclectic, enriching, timeless, thoughtful
● Crafted – homespun, unfiltered, repurposed, simple, comforting
● Inner Balance – spiritual, mysticism, connected, celestial, transcendental
And for buyers looking for the next big thing, University Of The Arts London have a feature stand where they are presenting a hand-picked selection of design products from 13 of their students and alumni, featuring a diverse range from furniture and household through to handbags, scarves, prints and stationery.
