Opportunity to outsource and subcontract manufacturing
The trade fair, in each of its edition, attracts international buyers seeking professional and reliable Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) and brands primarily from Asia. The event gives them an opportunity to outsource and subcontract their manufacturing to create fashion-driven collections of high-quality.
The fair enables boutiques, retailers, wholesalers, distributors and even department stores to specify the designs they need for the upcoming fashion season.
