Ireland's largest international creative trade show will return to the RDS from January 22 to 25 for its 41st year.

Some 450 exhibitors will showcase the best of Irish fashion and textile design at Showcase 2017. Last year, a total of 5,300 buyers attended and sales orders of up to €21m were placed.

This year's new initiative, TextISLE, focuses on the creative potential of Irish textiles in fashion and homeware.

Factories such as Avoca and Magee are participating in TextISLE, as are designers Peter O'Brien, Mairead Whisker and Emma Manley.
