Hong Kong Fashion Week to kick off from July 3

Jun '12
Hong Kong Fashion Week (HKFW) for Spring/Summer will take place from 3 to 6 July, 2012 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). In its 19th edition, clothing manufacturers and suppliers will introduce exciting new elements and present a great variety of finished garments, designer collections and fashion accessories, providing platform for both trading and design inspiration for industry players.

As the world’s 2nd largest clothing exporter, Hong Kong is a major trading hub for the garment industry. Total exports of clothing and clothing accessories from Hong Kong in 2011 amounted to USD 24.44 billion, an increase by 2% year-on-year. This is a good result given the lackluster global economic environment.

With its status as a global sourcing hub in Asia, Hong Kong attracts trading houses and major retailers buyers from American and European department stores, discount stores, specialty chains, mail order houses and important designer labels. They come to source not just traditional fashion items and clothing accessories, but also products targeting emerging market segments such as the teenager market, the male market, the silver market, as well as eco-friendly products and garments.

Last year, Hong Kong Fashion Week for Spring/Summer attracted over 1,300 clothing manufacturers and suppliers from 24 countries and regions. It is expected that this year's fair will continue to attract exhibitors from different parts of the world, and strengthening the event’s proven effectiveness in serving the garment and fashion design industry.

Hong Kong Fashion Week is zoned to provide maximum exposure for different sectors of the industry. Among them are three new zones, namely Salon of Scarves & Shawls, World of Youth Collection and Fashion Jewellery Feast, which serve the latest trends and current market demand.

Salon of Scarves & Shawls will bring together a huge array of items including silk squares, wool ponchos, evening wraps, knitted scarves, pashminas, embroidered stoles and many more.

World of Youth Collection highlights the profusion of looks for the young market – one of the most vibrant sectors in fashion today.
