Around 1,000 leading exhibitors are expected to join Intertextile Pavilion Shenzhen 2019 which will begin from July 4. The exhibitors will display a wide range of innovative fabric product categories including man-made, knitted, silk, linen, wool, denim, sportswear/functional, lace & embroidery and swimwear, as well as yarn & fibre and accessories.
“Shenzhen is a fashion capital with a solid industry, from design to manufacturing. This is an influential region where most of the successful brands and market leaders are based. This fair has successfully gathered high-quality buyers that have even exceeded my expectations,” said Jacky Lam, sales director of UPW from Hong Kong.
This year, returning international pavilions include Taiwan Pavilion, Korea Pavilion and Fine Japan Zone. Taiwan Pavilion organised by the Taiwan Textile Federation will feature knitted, jacquard, lace and embroideries, woven fabrics, functional and denim fabrics. Korea Pavilion by Korea Fashion Textile Association (KFTA) and Daegu Gyeongbuk Textile Industry Association (DGTIA), will display a wide range of ladies wear fabrics, such as man-made fashionable fabrics, knits, embroidery jacquard, tri-acetate woven and printed fabrics. Some members will also showcase functional fabrics and faux fur. Fine Japan Zone will cover a range of high-quality cotton and man-made fabrics for ladies wear as well as casual wear, with the ability to handle small order quantities, product-in-stock orders and quick delivery service.
“In Shenzhen and Guangzhou there are many, many new brands, and Intertextile Pavilion Shenzhen is one of the most important in the industry so these brands will attend. The high-end market in South China is still growing a lot,” said Ken Kanatani, fabric division manager of Stylem Intl (HK) from Japan. “In the last four years, the Chinese market has changed. Buyers don’t just want mainstream products – they want trendy and unique items, and they want them quickly so they can stay ahead of the trends and provide what their buyers need.”
