Trade Mission Helps Welsh Fashion Companies Secure New Business in New York


A number of Welsh companies have won new export business to one of the biggest fashion capitals in the world, New York, following a Welsh Government led trade mission to the city last week [20-26 March].

One of the companies is Vicky Rowe which designs and produces bridal wear including vintage inspired dresses and bohemian style gowns. Since launching the company from her studio in north Wales in 2013, Vicky has seen the business go from strength to strength.

With her lines already stocked at retailers in key fashion cities including London, Paris and Madrid and at other destinations in Ireland and the USA, Vicky sees exporting as an important part of her business model.

She decided to expand her presence in the United States following an increase in the number of enquiries from the US market and saw the Welsh Government’s trade mission as an ideal opportunity to try and secure new contracts.
