I need your help a colleague of mine at work is also a Designer and she needs help finding suppliers of quality Materials and Fabrics at reasonable prices.

She would like them to be around the London U.K.  area but is willing to travel further for the right product at the right price.

So if any of you know of or use quality suppliers I would appreciate some information on them I thank you in advance regards IAN

Designers are often quite guarded about their suppliers.
My partner does some fashion design and had a wesbite showcasing them. He had an email from the USA asking where the tweeds were from and he naively told her.
A month later an American had bought the entire lots of fabric he was using. They had dozens but they specifically bought the exact ones. So he had to use others.

So now he never tells anyone.

It is the same with big fashion houses I had to sign what was virtually a 'secrets act' as a fit model! They are very guarded about fabric sources.

Having said that I can suggest Brick Lane in London though it isn't anywhere near as good as it was. Also The Draper's Record is quite a good start:
