Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics: Show attracts large pavilions representing Japan, Korea and Taiwan China
The Japanese Pavilion is organised by Japan Fashion Week Organization and Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO). Commenting on the pavilion, Mr Akira Kawashima, the Senior Director of Japan Fashion Week’s Textile Division said:”We will feature more than 40 exhibitors wanting to promote their textiles which offer a fusion of advanced fabric technology and craftsmanship inspired skills.”
One of the Japanese Pavilion members is Kotmatsu Seiren Co Ltd, a leading fabric maker specialising in chemical synthetics to produce cutting edge fashion fabrics. Commenting on his company’s participation at the show, Sales Director, Mr Daisuke Nakayama said: “It is important to be in the pavilion to receive visitors who have a clear objective for seeking ‘Japan Products’. We will feature a category of finishings such as coating/pasting (bonding) among our differentiated fabric ranges.”
The Korean Pavilion is organised by the Korea Fashion Textile Association and Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency, featuring all kinds of man-made and functional fabrics from more than 110 exhibitors.
Commenting on the reasons for having a pavilion at the show, Mr Il Sung Yoo, the Korea Fashion Textile Association’s Director remarked: “The show’s rapidly increasing number of visitors and exhibitors means that there will be more opportunities for our exhibitors to show our new collections not only to Asian countries but also to visitors from countries such as South America.”
Ms Shin So Jung, Manager for Jihyun Co Ltd, a member of the pavilion agreed with Mr Il and added: “The pavilion can be a good place to meet new buyers for growing our business and we will launch new fabrics at the show.”
For the first time, Korea Chemical Fibers Association will form a special zone alongside its country pavilion in hall W2. In this area, four leading fibre companies, Huvis, Hyosung Corporation, Kolon Fashion Material Inc and Woongjin Chemical and their customers will present their latest fibre products and applications for apparels and fabrics.
Taiwan China is one of the show’s largest pavilions with more than 136 exhibitors and it is organised by the Department for Taiwan Textile Federation. Mr Feng Yu, Section Chief for the department’s Cross-Strait Marketing Section commented: “Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics is the largest professional textile trade fair in the world, and is renowned for its effectiveness in the textile industry. We see more business opportunities for Taiwan-made synthetic fibres as the product quality is good and stable and competitively priced when compared with natural fabrics. It is a good chance to expand our business in international markets.”
Universal Textile Co Ltd from Taiwan China believes its pavilion participation will enhance their company image as well as offering new business opportunities in a global market. The company will be highlighting four fabric products targeting the European, American and Japanese fashion apparel markets. Company representative Mr Frank Liao said: “Nowadays customers are looking for trendy products and fast delivery service, and we can suit our customer’s needs with our state of the art technology and quality products.”
In addition to the Japanese, Korean and Taiwan China pavilions, there are pavilions from India, Indonesia, Pakistan and Thailand as well as SalonEurope which features the Milano Unica pavilion, and pavilions from Germany, Portugal, Turkey and the UK.
Exhibitors and buyers to the show can also benefit from the synergy effect of four concurrent events. This year, Cinte Techtextil China – International Trade Fair for Technical Textiles and Nonwovens, Yarn Expo Autumn – China International Trade Fair for Fibres and Yarns, and China Knitting Fair are expected to attract more than 4,000 exhibitors and nearly 80,000 buyers from across the industry supply chain.
