A total of 388 domestic and international companies participated in the Korean textile fair Preview in Seoul (PIS) - a global textile and fashion fair that has helped expand the export of domestic textiles and fashion while stimulating domestic trade. The fair, held during August 28-30 in Seoul, was initiated in 2000 and celebrated its 18th anniversary.

A large number of innovative and creative products representing every aspect of the textile industry were on display. Among them were threads differentiated to meet the changing lifestyles of customers, eco-friendly and functional materials, knitwear, accessories, subsidiary materials, digital textile printing (DTP) and sewing machines.

There was a special Trend Forum Hall, which showed the latest materials at a Glance. The fair featured exciting concurrent events such as a fashion show, seminar, bazaar and job fair. The fair was based on the concept "ReMix#ReSet," referring to domains and barriers among industries as important keys and the rise of a new domain by integrating them.

Among the participating companies, 257 were from Korea including Hyosung, Kolon Fashion Material, Hanil Synthetic Fiber (thread), Shinhung, Seong-An, Shinhan Industrial (fabric), Sealon, Gio-Lite Lumian (subsidiary), D-gen, Three Leaf Clover (DTP), Youngone, Ledome and a mid-grade designer's brand (fashion clothes).

Young Textile (ultralight thermal and high-strength nylon), One Chang (light nylon), and Texland and Nexko (functional safety material) participated in Premiere Vision and Tex World to introduce the excellence of Korean materials. The three showed plenty of materials they recently developed at the PIS.

Fashion Fair had a showroom operated by the Korean Apparel Industry Association which featured Ledome’s designer brand, around 50 companies such as SEKANSKEEN, Doucan, THEaStory and BeBe n BiNo. It also had a common hall for leading Korean fashion companies and association members, and fashion companies popular in China as well as Korea such as C&C Korea, Noble Mink and Wide International.

A total of 131 companies from 16 countries and regions also participated in the show. Of these, 94 companies were from mainland China, 11 were from India, eight companies each were from Taiwan and Southeast Asia, five were from Pakistan and two companies were from Japan. There were global fibre companies such as Lenzing (Austria), Shima Seiki (Japan), Everlast (Taiwan), Heng Li and Sheng Hong Group (Mainland China), and those from India and Taiwan.

A Kofoti source said, "PIS this year was a total fibre fashion fair in which materials, fashion and lifestyle were gathered at one site, and it featured connected events that communicated with visitors and helped solve youth unemployment such as a fashion show, bazaar and job fair. We plan to reinforce consultations on real orders, the original purpose of the fair, by inviting promising buyers at home and abroad and holding business exchanges." (SV)
