The global fashion market is constantly evolving. New companies promote and progress developing trends. New exhibitors provide the window through which these movements can be viewed.
At Fashion Access (FA) there are 136 companies exhibiting for the first time. That's an extraordinarily large number for one exhibition. What do they offer? What trends do they foretell? Visitors to the exhibition will know.
The demand for higher-end and luxury fashion and lifestyle products has remained remarkably strong. Although demand in some countries is down, due largely to national economic conditions, in others it is buoyant and continues to grow.
That growth is best shown in several so-called вЂemergingвЂ™ economies: for example India, Brazil, Russia and, of course, China.
This sector-wide confidence is demonstrated at Fashion Access by the 640 plus exhibitors present. They come from 30 countries and regions with some 15 group pavilions.
Fashion Access is held twice a year. This event focuses upon fashion trend forecasts for Autumn-Winter 2011/12.
The range of lifestyle products on display вЂ“ providing вЂFashion from head to toeвЂ™ вЂ“ is comprehensive, including bags, footwear, branded fashion collections, leather garments, leathergoods and travelware.
Seminars (two notably by PeclersParis and Stylesight) and fashion presentations (Dress Up!) also take place throughout the fair. Seminars deliberately crossover into APLF - Materials, Manufacturing & Technology (APLF - MM&T) areas to appeal to both FA and APLF - MM&T participants, thus further reinforcing the synergy between both fairs.
