Fashion brand Exo Umbra, founded by Sophie Whitton-Varnham from St Albans, is being included as part of the collection at 36th LondonEdge exhibition in Islington.

It is a platform for authentic subculture styles, and aims to support the alternative lifestyle market.

Exo Umbra creates “creepy” tops for all shapes and sizes.

Sophie said: “I’m very excited to showcase, it’s my first time doing something like this and it’s a great opportunity for my homegrown business to expand.

“I am looking forward to networking and meeting some of the VIP guests and showing some of my handmade items.”

Businesses from all over the world will attend LondonEdge, which runs from February 11 to 12 at the Business Design Centre in Islington. Book at
