Apparel Sourcing trade fair 2016 ends on a successful note

Apparel Sourcing 2016, the European trade fair for worldwide apparel sourcing, and the Shawls & Scarves show, for accessories, scarves, and shawls, were recently held in Paris Le Bourget, from September 12 to 15, 2016. Visitors were pleased with the solutions and services provided at Apparel Sourcing Paris that offered customisation and flexibility.

Around 13 591 visitors from France, Italy, Turkey, Germany, and European countries turned up at the 39th session of events.

Having grown to one hundred exhibitors, the expo demonstrated an offer for clothing production and accessories that is unique in Europe. The diversity of skills offered made visitors more curious and encouraged them to take a closer look at their manufacturing processes. Questions on limited production runs and customisation appeared to be constantly in the background of buyers' questions.

A clearer and more transparent view of exhibitors' presentations for visitors, improved ease of making contacts, the openness and clarity making it easier to initiate discussions.

The Apparel Sourcing Accessories section dedicated to the manufacture of textile accessories featured an expanded range of umbrellas, bow ties and small leather goods, which were alongside the usual ranges of hosiery, tote bags, gloves, footwear etc.

The Shawls & Scarves show was dedicated to finished textile products and fashion accessories by around fifty exhibitors. Natural materials like linen or hemp, which Indian exhibitors are highly skilled in, also captured the visitors' attention. Similarly, accessories embroidered with rhinestones, targeting the segment for weddings and occasion wear, also drew a lot of sales orders.

Apparel Sourcing Paris also celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Chinese CTAF pavilion at the show, which represents major ranges of products from China. Xu Yingxin, assistant to the president of CNTAC and executive vice president of CCPIT TEX, Olaf Schmidt, vice president Textiles and Textile Technologies at the Messe Frankfurt Group, awarded prizes to 15 exhibitors for the quality of their products and to the most effective representatives.
