Around 45 percent of the exhibitors were committed to sustainable solutions and 16 per cent of the exhibitors confirmed their acceptance of minimum order quantities.

Four diversified conference tracks welcomed a full house of audiences, gathering a wide range of stake holders and industry decision makers, to anticipate opportunities and strategies through navigating the emerging markets and consumer behaviours, decode trends, and acquire inspirations, challenge the status quo and rethink the supply chain, as well as uncover the latest innovations.

Being an iconic signature of Interfiliere shows, the Creativ’ Lab (Trend Forum) curated by Concepts Paris welcomed its 50th edition in Hong Kong. The Creativ’ Lab paid special tribute to the ingenuity of designers and R&D teams from the industry, by creating a wall named ‘A Makers World’ with photographs of hands in the process of creation. Inside the lab, six storyboards, illustrated with sophisticated products for Interfiliere exhibitors and hottest shopping from around the world, demonstrated A/W 2020/21 seasonal trends. (GK)
