The upcoming Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics to be held from October 11 to 13, 2017 has added an extra accessories hall to strengthen its influence across entire apparel industry. In the entire process of creating a garment, the accessories used might be the smallest part and applied at the very end but they can have an outsized impact on the final look of the garment. These small pieces will also have a larger-than-life impact at the event. The extra accessories hall will accommodate more than 630 fashion and garment accessories exhibitors participating this year. High-end European accessories suppliers will also feature in Salon Europe. The increase in accessories exhibitors this edition adds to the 4,500-plus total suppliers taking part across all apparel fabrics and accessories sectors.
With so many suppliers under one roof, buyers are guaranteed a range of sourcing options to meet all needs. As with the rest of the fair’s product groups, among the offerings are a number of new product launches, products styled for the autumn/winter 2018/19 season, innovative products and eco-friendly options.
For the first time at Intertextile Shanghai, Hong Kong accessories suppliers will be represented in the Button & Garment Accessories Industry Chamber Pavilion. Also within Accessories Vision is the Shishi Pavilion from China, who will be joined by a number of China’s leading accessories suppliers. Accounting for the increased number of exhibitors this edition, the Accessories Vision halls will have a more defined grouping of exhibitors to maximise sourcing efficiency, including lining, interlining, tag, ribbon and lace and embroidery zones.
