From 12th to 14th March 2013 Shanghai's international fashion trade show, Mode Shanghai, will take place at the New International Expo Centre in Pudong, Shanghai. The trade show has been enhanced by the recent partnership between Shangtex and Enk International, the leading fashion apparel trade show producer, headquartered in New York.

Launched in 2010 by the Shanghai Textile Development Corporation, Shanghai Textile Technology Service & Exhibition Center and Shanghai Garment Trade Association, all part of Shangtex, Mode Shanghai presents a select international portfolio of women’s, men’s and casual contemporary collections plus accessories to Chinese and Asian retailers and a platform for the presentation of China’s emerging designers. The show is the exclusive trade show of Shanghai Fashion Week.

The main reason for Enk International working with Mode Shanghai is to further expand its business in China. The trade show producer will bring its portfolio of designers, brands and suppliers, plus an influential list of buyers and international media to the Mode Shanghai 2013.

In the last year Mode Shanghai featured 292 collections from 13 nations and hosted about 10,562 buyers from 27 countries and cities across China. Mode Shanghai is open exclusively to exhibitors, trade buyers and the media.
