The firm was 'delighted by the continued enthusiasm from licensees, retailers and agents' for their collections at the show, held back in October at London's Olympia.

"We're already planning for next year when we aim to have an even bigger presence".

Categories that Santoro saw interest in spanned outerwear, nightwear and underwear, both for the UK and Europe, with strong interest from a number of leading UK and international retailers, including DTR opportunities, cosmetics and toiletries.

Extensions to the craft category were discussed, as were opportunities for BTS stationery, tableware and melamine/lunchware.
