Exhibitors & fashion students continue to collaborate at Interstoff
Sep '10
After last season's successful debut, design students from Caritas Bianchi College of Careers (CBCC) will once again collaborate with participating suppliers at Interstoff Asia Essential Autumn. The feature will showcase more than 20 ladieswear collections, created by the students, using exhibitors' fabrics that interpret the upcoming A/W 2011/12 trends.

The fair takes place from 6 – 8 October at Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre and during the first two days of the fair, final collection pieces will be paraded on-site at for the first two days of the fair: 15:30 p.m. on 6 October; 12:00 p.m. and 15:00 p.m. on 7 October.

Exhibitors who previously donated their fabrics to be used in this creative partnership were all too eager to participate again this season. “It was a very positive experience for us. The designs were very creative and let buyers see how the fabrics would wear, which ultimately attracted more buyer enquiries to our booth,” said Ms Octavia Hui, senior merchandiser for New Jersey Enterprises Ltd, Hong Kong.

She continued, “With the recent economic woes, garment and textile manufacturers have been paying more attention to detail in order to stay relevant in this highly competitive market. These sorts of features allow us to promote our fabrics and truly reap immeasurable benefits for us.”

The design themes will cover fashion, functional and eco trends. “We hope to bring forward more innovative ideas in the students' designs that will hopefully provide inspiration for the fair's attendees as well as give our students a genuine perspective on working in this cutthroat industry,” said Mr. Ngan Man Leung, Lecturer, Faculty of Design, Caritas Bianchi College of Careers.For more than 39 years, CBCC has provided study programmes for disciplines in business, design and hospitality management.
