Global fashion meets in Hong Kong25 July 2006
Fashion Access is the largest trade fair in Asia for handbags, footwear, travel ware, leather garments and fashion accessories. The fair encompasses a diverse range of products and explores the design, colour and material trends developing for Spring/ Summer 2007. The event will be staged at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre on October 4-6, 2006. More than 480 exhibitors from all over the world are due to participate. Fashion Access continues to feature Top Style Hall exclusively for high fashion buyers with entry by invitation only. Inside, buyers can view a selection of top-line dress shoes, handbags and leather goods from Spain. Many of the products on display will be available for relatively small volume orders making them of particular interest to upper-end boutique buyers. At the Fashion Trends Lounge, buyers can view the hottest colour trends and directions of Fall/Winter 2007-08 in association with the Comité Français de la Couleur. Key pieces from a whole range of exhibitors will be on display at the lounge, aiding buyers to capture the trend of Spring/ Summer 2007 precisely. The seminar programme has once again been designed for retailers and buyers by offering the latest necessary information on trends and trade. The tradition of holding the 'Best of APLF' awards will be continued. These awards recognise excellence of design, quality and innovation among exhibitors. They highlight the importance of good design, uncompromising production values and creativity in giving one's product a competitive edge in the global market. Three major awards: Best in Design, Best in Quality, and Best in Innovation, will be presented with corresponding product categories. No product, no matter how good, 'sells itself'. So, special awards will also be given in recognition of branding concept, stand design, the best collection, the best fashion component and environmental-friendliness.
