Global Fashion: from sexy lingerie to warming furs & leather
Jan '09
The international economic and financial crisis now has the global textile and clothing market firmly in its clutches. In China last month whole series of textile and clothing firm had to fold. The largest Chinese consumer goods fair in Canton posted a drop in export orders of a good 30%.

The textile and clothing business in numerous high-consuming European countries has been paralysed since last summer if not before, prompting those supplying the clothing industry and large retail forms to revise their sourcing cycles, volume and regions even more stringently. A partial re-orientation is on the cards in many sourcing companies and new suppliers from other countries are being tested. Alongside new regions in Asia, Eastern Europe and especially North Africa are now moving more strongly into focus due to their greater market proximity, great flexibility and lower batch sizes per style.

Global Fashion remains Europe's leading fair for sourcing, private label and contract manufacturing when it comes to seeking new sourcing areas in the fashion business. Held once again in parallel to CPD and HMD from 1 to 3 February 2009 this special fair will this time be hosted in Hall 5. Once again it offers international sourcing management from both trade and industry a comprehensive kaleidoscope of companies from throughout the world. With 320 exhibitors from 20 countries Global Fashion presents a comprehensive range of companies and countries. This time exhibitors come from Bangladesh, Bulgaria, Canada, Egypt, Germany, Great Britain, India, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Macao, Morocco, Nigeria, Pakistan, Panama, the People's Republic of China including Hong Kong, Portugal, Serbia, Taiwan and the Ukraine.

Companies from Serbia and Morocco attending for the First Time
Amongst those celebrating their premiere this time at Global Fashion are companies from Serbia and Morocco. They enhance the new 'Global Exclusive' segment launched at the July 2008 event. The Serbian Chamber of Commerce will be presenting six companies as part of a joint stand. These firms produce women's and men's clothing and wish to score points with buyers from trade and industry with short and flexible delivery times, competitive prices, good value for money, good quality thanks to state-of-the-art technology and staff with great know-how.

With four companies the Moroccan clothing association A.M.I.T.H. will also be exhibiting in the fashion metropolis on the Rhine for the first time now. The ranges of these firms demonstrate the wide choice of manufacturing segments the Moroccan clothing industry has to offer. For instance, Cabilux covers almost the entire clothing range – from nightwear and homewear through to women's wear, children's wear and men's sportswear. Dounitex is specialised in shirts and blouses, complemented by pyjamas and corporate clothing.

With a production capacity of 10,000 garments per day Interlingehas not only been a long-imported supplier of European underwear and lingerie brands but it is also a specialist for the manufacture of niche products like maternity wear, sportswear or even swimwear.International buyers can find sportswear and functional/protective clothing and body protectors at Vetwear. This firm from Morocco is considered a national sectoral leader in the manufacture of feather down jackets.
