Held from March 27 to 29, 2019, Fashion World Tokyo covered the whole fashion supply chain. The show attracted 813 exhibitors from 31 countries and regions, 17,103 trade visitors and 7,686 conference attendees. There were a lot of Asian clothing manufacturers. Among them were exhibitors from Bangladesh, China, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Nepal, Pakistan, Taiwan and Vietnam.
Launched in 2013, the event is the best gateway for international exhibitors to meet business buyers or partners not only from Japan but also from Asia and other areas of the world. With an increasing number of international visitors, the show is regarded as the Asian business hub of the fashion industry.
The Japanese fashion market is the world’s third biggest. The show gathers factories known for low cost, high quality, flexibility in order size and skilled craftsmanship. World’s leading apparel and textile factories chose to exhibit at Fashion World Tokyo to expand their business. A matching system enables both exhibitors and visitors to make appointments. This is a guided tour for visitors. Since it is extremely difficult to view every single exhibitor in detail during the show, the service is highly appreciated by many buyers. Some of those meetings ended up with on-site ordering.
