Wholesale fashion collections here at TradeGala are sitting patiently ready to be purchased, all you just need to know which of the S/S season trends will be of most interest to your consumers. That's where we come in with our round up of which styles and themes will be most sought after by your customers this summer.
Although the fashion industry is one of the most lucrative, its is also one of the most polluting in the world and many high fashion houses are taking on board the concept of making their creative design and production processes more environmentally friendly. Several pioneers of high fashion and sustainable fashion are fantastic examples of this. Stella McCartney has always taken green matters close to her heart and recently announced that her company is joining LVMH to boot its sustainable development strategy and its clearly worked as 75% of pieces designed for the s/s collection were eco friendly. One of TradeGala’s favourite brands Vildnis are another at the forefront of becoming more conscious of how their clothing impacts the environment and their s/s 2020 collection has some fantastic key pieces.
As wholesale apparel garments go, the catsuit has had something of resurgence in popularity over the last few years. This S/S, an all in one would be a good choice to invest in for your retail outlet as lots of high fashion collections from the likes of Moschino, Balenciaga and Saint Laurent borrowed the 1980’s catsuit look worthy of David Bowie, with or without the glitter.
Summer nights call for floaty light pieces that can work well on holiday and pack easily, so this trend is a retailers dream. The psychedelic clothing of the 1970’s was recreated on the catwalk collections of Etro, Celine and Dior. But it isn’t just high-end fashion houses reminiscing about Woodstock, and recreating an air of Janis Joplin. Aimelia, Goddiva and Independent Clothing all have fantastic, brightly coloured, wholesale pieces is their collections so your store can also be adorned in hippy silhouettes and flawless seventies style cuts.

Hotter weather means lighter clothing so take your stock inspiration from tropical climes. On the catwalk Versace gave Jennifer Lopez’s 2000 Grammy award dress a new vision, so fashion masterminds Dolce and Gabbana have followed suit with palm tree prints on transparent fabrics. Animal prints, light fabrics, bright colours and jungle prints are the key things to look for. Haus of Deck have fantastic separate pieces that can be used to create lots of different outfits.
The key to adopting this trend straight from the Parisian runways, is opting for candy tones and doll-like looks. Fendi, Miu Miu and Giambattista Valli all brought some winsome charm to their shows with this trend. Think graceful; delicate, frill- adorned pieces making the wearers appear like life size toys. Goddiva do some fantastic ruffled dresses in pastel shades as do City Goddess so you’re spoilt for choice here at TradeGala for wholesale garments that adopt this popular theme.
Bright and lairy? Of course! Neon takes us back to the 1990s, a time of individuality, inclusivity and a dab of punk inspiration. These wholesale garments should be jumping out of their packaging before you see them, bold, bright and wanting to be seen. Versace and Valentino covered the designs at the high end of the fashion scale and Nesavaali and City Goddess bring the trend to life for trade gala. When it comes to promoting these neon items to your customers shrinking violets need not apply!
Tailoring never goes out of fashion and this is definitely the case with this S/S 2020. Chloe and Valentino were pioneers of creating these new rules of evening dress as the season is full of tomboy influences with the tuxedo making a comeback adapted this time cut to a shorter length under the knee and adding more feminine details such as plunging necklines, transparent blouses and light pastel colours. One wholesale garment manufacturer with a fantastic range are Globaltex Fashion who make well cute suit pieces that can be adapted to fit this trend well and suit any age bracket or dress size. A tailored jacket never goes out of style and Independent Clothing has lots of them in the S/S 2020 collection.
