More than 30 leading Vietnamese manufacturers of garments, textiles and fashion accessories as well as garment-related industries are displaying their products at Hong Kong’s largest one-stop sourcing fashion show which opened on April 27.

Products on display at the Global Sources Fashion show include apparel, fashion jewelry, underwear, swimwear, bags, luggage, scarves, footwear and fabrics all under one roof.

The four-day show features verified suppliers from major fashion manufacturing hubs, including Viet Nam, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia and the Philippines.

The show hosts the largest collections of bags and luggage, footwear and sports fashion in Hong Kong as well as Asia’s largest scarf pavilion.

It also features 400 new exhibitors and more than 500 exhibitors promoting their own designs and brands.

Dedicated national and regional pavilions are featuring quality fashion products from countries and regions, including Viet Nam, India, Jiangsu, Hunan Shaodong and Xiamen.

Thousands of top buyers are expected to attend the show, including Adidas, Avery Dennison, AYE AYE, Colette, eBay, Fossil, GAP, Marubeni, Mothercare, Potpourri, Ralph Lauren, S Oliver, Scarf Home, Sears, Target Australia, Tiffany, United Colors of Benetton and Vivarte.

Livia Yip, president of Global Sources Fashion Group, said: “Covering a wide variety of in-demand fashion items, the show allows international buyers to easily discover trendy items for the upcoming sourcing season.”

“Many fashion buyers, exporters and other industry participants have seen the show as a key industry event for their sourcing plan,” she added.

Pham Thiet Hoa, director of the HCM City Investment and Trade Promotion Centre (ITPC), said for many Vietnamese garments and textiles enterprises, Hong Kong was an important sourcing hub in Asia to connect with quality buyers from the EU and the US.

Vu Ngoc Khiem, chief representative of Global Sources office in Viet Nam, said: “In this year’s show, Vietnamese exhibitors have captured high interest from visitors and the show’s organiser. More companies have been asked to display their products and perform at the fashion parade.”

Last year, the event attracted more than 12,000 buyers from 150 countries and territories, including the US, the EU, Hong Kong and Japan, among others.

Chris Walker, author of the book Guide to Producing Garments in Viet Nam, will deliver a seminar on how buyers can buy more profitably from Viet Nam.

Other highlights include conference programmes, fashion parades and the Trends Forum, presented by Fashion Snoops and Pantone.

Global Sources is a Hong Kong-based B2B media company and a primary facilitator of global trade using its integrated online and offline services. In Viet Nam, the company helps match buyers and suppliers through offline events. — VNS
