For three days from 17 March 2010 at Interstoff Asia Essential, thousands of trade professionals from the entire apparel supply chain gathered to generate business, gain inspiration and motivate positive exchange. Some 270 fashion, functional and eco textile suppliers from 12 countries and regions showed their collections to 6,798 visitors in an inspirational atmosphere and positive mood.

The bulk of the visitors represented major buying offices, retailers and brands like Ann Taylor, BCBG Maxazria Group,Bossini Enterprises Limited, Diesel (K-Bit), Dow Corning, Eddie Bauer Intl Ltd, Esquel Enterprises Limited, Gap Inc, Hugo Boss, Kinji Company Limited, Li & Fung (Trading) Ltd, Marks And Spencer P.L.C, Nike International Ltd, Paul & Shark Yachting, Phillips Van Heusen Far East Ltd, Puma Asia Pacific Limited, Reitmans (Canada) Limited, Timberland, Vivienne Tam, Wal-Mart, Warnaco Global Sourcing Ltd among many others.

Of the total visitors attending, a majority came from Hong Kong with China, Taiwan and Korea representing the strongest visiting Asian countries and regions. Meanwhile the US, Australia and Germany represented the vast international participating visitors. In general visitors were looking for distinct materials and high quality fabrics. Natural fibres such as cotton, linen and silks continue to garner attention as well as luxurious materials such as camel hair, velvet and wool among others.

First time invited buyer from Brazil, Mr Charles A. Costa, Purchaser for Marisol, exceeded his expectations of the fair. “This experience has been very different and good for us. The options are excellent and the quality is very high. We've made contact with a number of great suppliers and we are happy to have met so many velvet producers.”

Industry associations such as CCPIT- Jiangsu, Shanghai & Zhejiang, Korea Fashion Textile Association and Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency and Taiwan Textile Federation sponsored groups from some of the most important textile producing areas. Country and region pavilions included Amazing Taiwan, Elite China, Fine Japan, and Premium Korea. Special areas were also signposted for accessories, eco suppliers and knitwear designers.

Mr James Nam, President for NK fabric, a participant in the Korean pavilion was very happy with the high levels of professional buyers at the fair. “During these three days I have met with representatives from leading brands such as Donna Karen, H&M and Guess. Buyers here are not just looking for quality products and design but they have come for business as well. In fact, I have already made some deals on-site and even generated serious leads.”

Aside from the business, Interstoff Asia Essential Spring reinforced its position as one of the most important industry platforms for cutting edge textiles with a particular focus on sustainability.
