Interstoff Asia Essential, held from 19 to 21 March at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, finalized its show with sturdy results. 221 (2013: 229) exhibitors from China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea and Thailand came to the tradeshow, presenting a whole variety of fabrics, including Denim, functional fabrics, silk, lace and eco fabrics. Also accessories were included in a greater extend, to make buyers’ sourcing trips to the fair more worthwhile. A total of 7,027 (2013: 7,244) visitors were joining the show, most of them coming from Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea and Australia.

The Hong Kong fair is a great sourcing opportunity for the many buying offices located in Hong Kong. Also new developments are given a platform, featuring new technologies and eco friendly products, both accompanied by lecturers. Further, the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) Working Group presented the new Version 4.0 of the worldwide recognized standard. Also Africa, as the new emerging sourcing continent, was introduced and the government of Hong Kong signalized its will to support Hong Kong’s efforts to become more attractive to the international textile industry.

Another feature of the fair, the Designers’ Studio, demonstrated how to minimize waste in fashion designs by showcasing award-winning outfits – sponsored by Redress – from the EcoChic Design Awards. Furthermore, innovative garments from Lenzing Fibers Ltd (Hong Kong), as well as 12 outfits designed by six Hong Kong designers / brands were displayed and presented in the Fabrics to Fashion Walk.
The fall edition of Interstoff Asia Essential will be held from 25 – 27 September 2014.
