What's on at Bubble...


This season, we’re bringing you one of our most action-packed and inspiring editions to date! From a new-and-improved seminar programme brimming with unique insights, to ‘perfect pitches’, Rising Stars, and some very special guests, there’s plenty to make you look at A/W16 a little differently…

Look Who's Talking...

 
This season, we’ve added three exclusive panel debates to our Look Who’s Talking seminar programme.

Sunday will see Smallish's Estelle Lee, Little Spree's Sarah Clark (pictured 2), Mother Pukka's Anna Whitehouse (pictured 1) and My Baba's Leo Bamford take to the stage for Instagram Mums, a discussion about the hugely popular platform. 


A second debate, featuring Baby & Little London's Kate Finney, Honeyjam's Jasmine Guinness, Petite Pearl Lowe's Pearl Lowe and entrepreneur Caprice Bourret will focus on the highs and lows of juggling a demanding career with motherhood. 

Elsewhere, NPR's Nathan Rous will be talking PR on a shoe-string, while trend consultant Fiona Coleman reveals which colours, shapes and styles are set to be big in A/W16. 

 

On Monday, we'll be bringing you Buyers Guide, a panel discussion featuring Fiona Coleman, Brand Stable's Daniele Sismondi, Fenwick's Melanie Cassel, Elias & Grace's Nicky Thrussel and Childrensalon's Arianna Vaccas. Enterprise Nation's Emma Jones will also be revealing how to start and grow a successful business - and, finally, there'll be a second chance to catch Fiona Coleman's trend update. 

Don't miss one of our most exciting line-ups to date!

Rising Star...


Our Rising Star award returns this season – and the competition is stiffer than ever! 

Seven launch brands will be vying for the title, with a panel of industry experts (including Maternity Buyer's Liz Pilgrim and Your Children's Wardrobe's Amanda Evans) set to judge them. 

 

Chic Smart Clothes, Avery Row and Dear Eco all made the shortlist - and will be joined by Nod, Outside the Lines, social enterprise From Babies with Love, and Brit Pack brand Panda & Ping.

We'll be announcing the winner on Sunday; stay tuned!
