“At this event, the footwear section has increased by 25 per cent compared to the March 2014 edition offering more choice of designs and styles to buyers,” APLF, the organiser said in a press release.

At the Korean pavilion, there is a wide selection of bags and belts in distinctive designs and colours for the discerning sourcing specialist visiting the fair.
