Catwalk Show to take place at Intertextile Shanghai

Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, held from 22 – 25 October 2012 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre, has a number of new programmes to offer visitors.

For the first time ever, the Intertextile Catwalk Show will take place at Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics 2012. The organiser has invited the well-known Hong Kong fashion designer William Tang to use exhibitors’ fabrics to design and produce a collection for a runway show to be held on 22 October 2012.

He says: “It’s just incredible how the quality of Asian suppliers has improved tremendously over the years. I was really glad when the organisers originally asked me to do a show nearly 20 years ago at Interstoff – I was the pioneer – and now, they’ve asked me to do this again at Intertextile Apparel Fabrics Shanghai. It has really been a great inspiration.”

Exhibitors, including Danmo, Huaqi, Lenzing, Luthai, Shishi Cloth Association, and Suzhou CINC, will also be showcasing design pieces using their own products. Intertextile Directions Trend Forum in hall W1, by Kai Chow of Doneger Creative Services, will preview Autumn / Winter 2013/14 trends based on four distinct creative themes.
