IAF, HKGCOT to exchange knowledge on apparel markets

Mar '15
With an aim to exchange knowledge on innovation, apparel markets and international business opportunities, the International Apparel Federation (IAF) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Hong Kong General Chamber of Textiles (HKGCOT).
 
The MoU, signed earlier this week in Hong Kong, gives the IAF an important connection in the vibrant fashion industry of Hong Kong. It helps to further the IAF’s aim to build bridges across continents by attracting fashion entrepreneurs from Hong Kong to IAF’s international Conventions and vice versa, to bring information and connections from across the world to Hong Kong, IAF said in a statement.
 
“The collaboration with IAF is a step further in Hong Kong’s goal to globalise local designer brands and to create opportunities for young promising designers to get international exposure,” the statement said.
 
The MoU was signed by Rahul Mehta, president of IAF, and Gordon Yen, chairman of HKGCOT. In collaborating with IAF, HKGCOT members can strengthen their knowledge on overseas markets by using IAF’s network which reaches over 50 countries and the biggest apparel markets.
 
Last year, HKGCOT signed an MoU with IAF member American Apparel and Footwear Association (AAFA).
 
Hong Kong is a hub for international fashion industry, especially in the areas of design, sourcing and education. Large fashion shows and exhibitions are held regularly in Hong Kong each year which attract businesses around the world. (RKS)
