Asia’s leading fashion accessories fair Fashion Access and Cashmere World open their doors today for fashion professionals and buyers looking for those special items for their boutique collections for Spring / Summer 2017.
Organised by APLF Ltd with its 32 years’ experience in trade fair management in Asia, Fashion Access and Cashmere World come together under one roof to satisfy brand sourcing and subcontracted production requirements.
Some Highlights Visitors Can Expect
This year there are more than 150 exhibitors at the trade fairs that are suppliers of fashion accessories, cashmere and fine fibre goods. For direct sourcing purposes the fair is a boutique fair where brands can be found in the mid to higher price ranges and a large percentage of exhibitors offer ODM and OEM services for brands and designers wishing to outsource their production.
In this sense Fashion Access and Cashmere World offer two dimensions of business activity from exhibitors that hail from 20 countries - Bangladesh, Brazil, Cambodia, Cayman islands, China, Colombia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Italy, Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, UK & USA.
There are five multi-brand Brazilian footwear manufacturers presenting at Fashion Access with their flair and tropical styles and in Cashmere World some of the most important garment manufacturers can be found from Asia. These include the Gobi Corporation, Viction and Erdenet among others.

Besides functioning as a trade fair, Fashion Access and its sister event Cashmere World offer a series of educational seminars that take place during the fair and in the same venue.

In addition there are a series of APLF Workshops on leather craft during the fair for visitors to experience and be creative with leather. This September, the event returns with many fun and exciting workshops. Confirmed presenting companies include: Brothers Leathercraft, Sabah Design Studio and Leather Resources Centre.
