A wide range of apparel fabrics and accessories will be on display at this year's Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics-Autumn Edition 2014, scheduled from October 20 to 23, 2014 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. Over 3,500 exhibitors from more than 30 countries and regions are expected to participate. Some of the most popular features of the fair -- SalonEurope, the country/region pavilions and the group pavilions-- will be there again.
This year’s SalonEurope, covering 10,000 sq. mt. contains fabric manufacturing mills, accessories suppliers and design houses from Europe to meet the demand for high-end products in the domestic market. Country pavilions from Germany, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, the UK and the France zone return again, as does the Milano Unica Pavilion from Italy. Also featuring in SalonEurope is the Premium Wool zone which showcases quality wool fabrics from France, Italy and the UK. And Verve for Design will house design studios from Australia, France, Italy, Korea, Spain and the UK, all exhibiting their latest original creative fabrics and textile pattern designs.
While the best of British textiles are to be showcased in this year’s UK Pavilion, with some of the industry’s premium suppliers taking part, the France zone will feature ladies wear fabric suppliers. The exhibitors taking part are looking to benefit from the increase in demand in China for premium fabrics and see the fair as the best way to do this. The best of Asia will also be on display at Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics with country / region pavilions from India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Thailand.
Exhibitors in the Japan Pavilion will specialise in knitted, cotton, wool, man-made and linen/ramie fabrics, while those in the Taiwan Pavilion will display functional, knitted, jacquard and man-made yarns and fabrics, as well as lace and embroidery. Buyers looking for the latest innovations in apparel fabrics and accessories will find them in the group pavilions, which are organised by leading fibre and yarn companies and feature their partner mills.
