Taking place concurrently with Asia's largest fashion event,HKTDC Hong Kong Fashion Week for Fall/Winter, 18-21 January 2010 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, World Boutique, Hong Kong will gather garments, accessories and lifestyle products from around the globe.

At the last event, over 450 brands brought their latest collections to World Boutique, Hong Kong with the highest number of exhibitors recorded. For its 2010 edition, the star power of Vivienne Westwood will be a highlight. The full impact of the exciting Vivienne Westwood brand will be experienced in a runway show of the label's latest collection. Added to that, the CreativeDirector of Vivienne Westwood, Andreas Kronthaler, will attend in person. Mr Kronthaler, who is also Dame Westwood's husband, is a creative force in the British company, overseeing the seasonal collections of four clothing ranges as well as handbags, jewellery, footwear and eyewear.

MANGO, the Spanish fashion export brand with great presence in international markets, will also join the 2010 edition of World Boutique, Hong Kong for the first time. Having opened its first store in Barcelona, MANGO was one of the first western fashion brands to enter the Chinese mainland market.

MANGO's effort on consolidating its business in China is paid off with an increase in sales and brand awareness. At an exclusive seminar, Mr Isak Halfon, MANGO's Board Member and Executive Vice President of International Expansion, will come to Hong Kong to share the brand's success story and their business horizons in Asia, especially in Chinese mainland.
