The second edition of the International Textile Fair (ITF), UAE’s premier platform for fashion, home textile fabrics, and clothing, would be held from April 26 to 27, 2015, at the Dubai international exhibition and conference centre.

This season, ITF is collaborating with distinguished fashion and trend experts to support regional designers with exclusive workshops and seminars on trend and colour forecasts for Autumn Winter 2016. The format is beneficial to design students and younger designers who can benefit from information otherwise confined to global textile shows.

ITF 2015 has teamed up with the prestigious colour and trend-forecasting agencies, Pantone and Nelly Rodi respectively, offering updated industry insight to visitors of the show. The organizers also plan on an extremely interactive fair with creative zones placed within the show area featuring modest fashion designs and wearable art, according to reports.

This will be an exclusive trade only event that will showcase pre-collection autumn/winter highlights. ITF 2015 Dubai aims to attract various agents in the industry to make them meet and greet as many suppliers as possible. It serves as a platform for agents to conduct B2B meetings with textile traders all across the world and create better business relations.

The trade event is expected to attract international large-scale textile producers and distributors to cater to the booming regional textile requirements. This one-of-a-kind platform would allow the Middle Eastern designers and garment retailers to access some of the largest global manufacturers of fabrics and prints. ITF 2015 would bring together over 200 exhibitors from Italy, Portugal, Turkey, India, China, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, and other international markets.

ITF’s show director, Mr. Dilip Nihalani said, “Shows like ITF are held regularly in cities like Paris, Milan and New York and it gives us great pride to launch a show of this calibre in Dubai. The show injects additional zeal to the regional textile sector, as international players build new ties and establish business alliances with local and regional players.”

UAE is the world’s fourth largest trading centre of fashion and apparel, with the presence of about 150 apparel manufacturing companies that account for about 5.5 per cent of the world’s annual textile and clothing sales. (GK)
