The Global Sources Fashion show opens in Hong Kong today with 1,600 booths bringing together a range of suppliers and new products from across Asia set to welcome buyers looking for the hottest items in the industry.
Global Sources' fashion show assembles top suppliers from mainland China, India, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, the Philippines, Vietnam and across Asia. Buyers will be able to source fashion products including apparel, fashion jewelry, underwear and swimwear, bags and luggage, scarves, footwear and fabrics. In addition, dedicated brand walls have been set up to help 330 ODM/OBM suppliers promote their own designs and brands.
President of Global Sources Fashion Group, Livia Yip, said that with an eye on market trends, they strive to help buyers discover items that will be hot in the coming months. They also adapt the show to match demand for specific product categories. For instance, they have brought in a broader selection of footwear and functional fabrics this spring; the selection for bags and luggage has been increased by 50 percent from the previous show; and, to meet rising demand, the bags and luggage pavilion will become a standalone show in October 2016.
Young Designers Corner and Fashion Technology Corner introduce new high-tech products and elements to attendees and make it a perfect platform for industry players to meet fashion entrepreneurs.
By connecting the traditional and the new, the experienced and the young, Global Sources aims to create a fashion ecosystem to help manufacturers move up the value chain.
