Turkish delegation to attend Magic Fashion Fair in LA

A 16-member delegation of Turkish textile and ready-to-wear clothing executives, led by the Chamber of Commerce of Kahramanmaras, will attend the Magic trade fair in Las Vegas this month, the chamber said in a press release.

Their visit, from August 17-19, was organized through the Turkish economic minister's office. It will allow the executives to meet American counterparts and tour manufacturing facilities as they work to expand sales and trade agreements.

“This visit provides a unique opportunity for our members to showcase their products in what is, for many, an untapped market,” said Kemal Karakucuk, chairman of the chamber's administrative board. “We're confident this will facilitate the development of new trade opportunities, which will prove beneficial to both Turkish companies and their prospective US partners.”

Located in southern Turkey, Kahramanmaras has a population of about 575,000 and is famous for its ice cream production. But the city is also well known for its textile and yarn export. The textile sector is the leader with 1,000 industrial plants exporting to over 100 countries, totaling $900 million.

The city generated half of the $5.5 billion of private sector investment in the textile sector over the last decade.

Companies represented in the delegation include Elit Mensucat, Iskur Konfeksiyon, Terkonsan Tekstil, Marisa Tekstil ve Konfeksiyon, Naren Konfeksiyon ve Moda, and Liya Tekstil. They manufacture and sell product categories ranging from knit fabric apparel to outerwear, men's and women's suits, t-shirts, nightgowns, and underwear, using high quality cotton and textile materials. They have very competitive prices, and due to this, their share in total export increased 70 per cent in 2014.

Magic, held twice a year in Las Vegas, is one of the world's largest fashion trade shows. Featuring the latest in apparel, shoes, accessories and manufacturing, each event draws more than 60,000 guests from more than 120 countries. (SH)
