CHIC Shanghai to welcome 1,000 exhibitors in March 2020

Dec '19
From March 11-13, 2020, China International Fashion Fair (CHIC), Asia's largest tradefair for fashion and lifestyle, will be connecting customers with the most coveted fashion market for an efficient market entry, at the National Exhibition & Convention Center in Shanghai. Almost 1,000 exhibitors will present their new collections to 100,000 visitors at CHIC.

The individual fashion segments of CHIC will be set up for the first time as independent areas. Defined with new titles, they will focus precisely on the core values of the Chinese consumer market. Tailored to the respective requirements and market peculiarities of the individual fashion segments, they will thus achieve a clear external impact and clarity in the communication and at the same time make orientation easier for trade visitors visiting the show.

"The Chinese market is developing at a rapid pace, and today China has a mature fashion market with top players, developed structures, and trend-setting consumers. CHIC's new concept reflects this market transformation, sets the trends for the future and efficiently connects with visitors to enable intercontinental business," said Chen Dapeng, president of CHIC and the China National Garment Association.

With clear stringency, the organisers are pursuing strategic marketing measures to connect exhibitors and visitors. For example, they are increasing collaboration with Chinese key opinion leaders (KOLs) and influential fashion blogs which are hugely important tools to reach the Chinese consumer and push the products in the market.

Secondly, they are increasing cooperation with sales platforms such as TMall / Alibaba for international brands with exclusive support of the platform's executive sales level to facilitate store openings there or with apps such as Little Red Book / RED (luxury app for retail with peer -to-peer approach).

Thirdly, they are intensifying VIP matching at the fair with retail partners like buyers from IT, the balancing, Dongliang, The Fashion Beijing SKP, Wanda, Lafayette, Yintai Group, Wangfujing Group, Suzhou Renmin Shopping Center, Xin’an Minsheng Door, Foss, The Mix-Palc3, 1Wor, Magmode, Water Stone Market, inxx, KIKS, P-PLUS; department stores and shopping centers like Beijing SKP, Carrefour Group, Wanda, Lafayette, Yintai Group, Wangfujing Group, Suzhou Renmin Shopping Center, Xin’an Minsheng Department Store or online platforms like Netcase, Yoho!, The Little Red Book, VIP.com, Tmall, JD.com, Youpin, Mogu Street, Amazon, etc. Around 100 VIPS from Chinese trade will be invited to match with the exhibitors at CHIC's expense.

In the five halls of the National Exhibition and Convention Center, the exhibitors will be presenting themselves in the segments CHIC Worldwide, CHIC Men's, CHIC Women's, CHIC Winter's, CHIC Kidz, CHIC Impulses, CHIC Young Blood, CHIC Tailoring, CHIC Accessories, Bags & Shoes as well CHIC Sourcing in addition to the show-in-shows PH Value and Preview in China from Korea.

In March, CHIC will pay special attention to the international area CHIC Worldwide, which this time will be at the centre of the fair at the North Entrance Hall.

International niche collections are currently in great demand among Chinese consumers. They are driven by insider exclusivity that meets the need for differentiation and individuality. High quality brands that tell an authentic ‘story’ receive special attention from them. Consumer communication via social media is an essential factor for the pull effect in the market. All CHIC promotional measures, including extensive WeChat advertising and eNewsletter promotion, support this effect.

Among the international pavilions at CHIC, Italy traditionally has the largest European participation with about 30 brands in the fashion, bags, shoes and accessories sectors. The Italian pavilion will be supported by the Italian Trade Agency ITA, which carries out extensive promotional activities. France will present itself fresh and young with the ‘Mode in France’ pavilion, with womenswear, menswear and accessories.

Korean design shows will present ‘Preview in China’ with more than 30 brands. Individual exhibitors will come from Poland, Switzerland, Singapore, Turkey, Vietnam, India, Spain etc and show among others exclusive womenswear.

CHIC Winter's, the exhibition area for leather and down wear, will welcome Bosideng and Copenhagen Fur. National group exhibitions from Xinji, Haining, Tongxiang and Pinghu, traditionally strong regions in leather and fur production, will appear with their respective market leaders. Top players like Balabala (Semir Group) and Eton Kidd will present themselves at CHIC Kidz.

In the womenswear division CHIC Women's, the Italian French business group, E-Fashion Town, Da Lang, Fu Li and Yin Ji have announced their exhibition as a joint group. Avora will be represented for the third time with the brands Avrala, Thisnorthat and Chen Meihau. Even the stylish Shanghai brand Ji Xiang Yi Jia will participate for the third time.

Among others, new exhibitor Clasna, the well-known Chinese down brand will present its womenswear line at CHIC. The Korean group participation ‘Fashion Insight’ will be represented at CHIC Young Blood with its market-important streetwear and young fashion labels SIIJII, One Piece, Wookong, Morning Grazing, Acmé de la vie etc.
