Riga to host Baltic Fashion & Textile 2014 fair
Nov '13
Latvian capital Riga is gearing up to host a competitive fashion and textile centric fair, which would specifically aim to boost the textile industry of the entire Baltic region and tap in new international markets for the manufacturers.
The Baltic Fashion & Textile RIGA 2014, the event will be attended by manufacturers, distributors, designers and fashion and textile professionals from the Baltic States, Scandinavian nations, Russia and the CIS countries.
Scheduled to take place from April 4 to 6, 2014, the fair calendar will include exhibition, business to business matchmaking, conferences, fashion shows and the international competition for young fashion designers ‘Habitus Baltija 2014’.
With a primary focus on the textile products and creative potential of the Baltic industry leaders, the exhibition will be divided into three sections—Raw materials and Production equipment, Clothing and Accessories (which would display the latest apparel industry trends and services) and Recycled clothing (which will highlight issues related to sustainable consumption and recycling).
The fair’s matchmaking initiatives will serve as a platform for fostering new commercial relationships and a means to facilitate business promotions and international communication among the participants. 
Additionally, conferences, covering topics like the inclusion of environment-friendly materials in clothing, how to start a fashion business, fashion design courses in Latvia and business opportunities in Europe, will be hosted at the event.
The fashion shows and young designers’ competition will highlight women, children and men’s casual and festive apparels, innerwear, swimwear, leather and fur clothing by both Latvian and other country designers. 
Co-hosted by the organisers of the Lithuanian expo Baltic Textile + Leather ‘BT 1’ and the textile industry associations of Latvia and Lithuania, the Baltic Fashion & Textile will be organized twice a year, alternately in Riga (spring) and in the Lithuanian capital city of Vilnius (autumn).
