Scoop is where fashion and lifestyle meet art and design. Hosted in the iconic Saatchi Gallery, Scoop has made its name in the fashion industry as a destination for carefully curated contemporary womenswear.
Recognised by designers, fashion buyers and industry experts as one of the UK’s leading fashion trade shows, Scoop is an exclusive edit of sought-after fashion collections and emerging international designers, many of whom select Scoop as their only trade platform.
With an impressive line-up of the finest premium collections, Scoop is famed for its unique aesthetic. Carefully curating over 250 designer labels around outstanding works of contemporary art, Scoop offers visitors a unique and bespoke buying environment to discover a host of the new season collections.
Launched in February 2011, by Karen Radley, Scoop has developed into one of London’s leading fashion trade shows, encompassing an edited line up of premium women’s fashion as well as luxury home, beauty, lifestyle and selected men’s collections.
Scoop’s next edition will take place in the Saatchi Gallery on 12th – 14th September 2021. Under the direction of Karen Radley, Scoop and Pure London unite for a unique collaboration, as two of London’s best-loved shows come together to showcase the very best of their line-ups.
Karen Radley, Founder and Managing Director of Scoop, has had an extensive and multi-faceted career in the fashion industry spanning the manufacturing, retail and design sectors.
She first joined her father’s clothing and accessories business, Radley. After working for several years on the brand’s international sales Karen side-stepped to the manufacturing and design side using her years of trade experience to inform and support the role.
Having gained an all-round experience of the industry, Karen went on to manage the designer company Quorum, whose designers included Celia Birtwell, Betty Jackson and Ossie Clark. Karen was also instrumental in staging an exhibition of the work of Ossie Clark at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
In 2004 Karen founded her own fashion agency representing collections from DKNY, Fendi, Pringle, Missoni and Matthew Williamson which was then followed by the launch of Scoop in February 2011.
