In each edition, this biannual trade fair draws the attention of international buyers who are on the lookout for professional and reliable OEMs, ODMs and brands primarily from Asia. It is perfect for those who are not just looking for OEM manufacturers but also ODM and OBM services to outsource and subcontract their manufacturing to create fashion-driven collections of high-quality.

Extra Dimension offered by Fashion Access

The event far outstrips the limits imposed by a mere fashion accessory sourcing trade fair. This extra dimension is vital for boutiques, retailers, wholesalers, distributors and even department stores to find fashion inspiration and be able to find and, more importantly, specify the designs they need for the upcoming fashion season.

It is also a venue for discovering specialist manufacturers and a wide array of services which can customise and manufacture fashion collections and accessories to both design and brand specifications.

Features to look forward to at the March Event

With more than 30 years experience in organising trade fairs for fashion accessories in Asia, The Organisers are fully aware that buyers of all types and especially for designers, they need inspiration in the fast-moving world of international fashion trends.

Bearing this in mind there are fashion events, workshops led by experts in each field, trend seminars and networking events where new contacts can be established.

There are the Best of APLF Awards (BOAA) where a panel of professionals from the fashion sector select and choose the best products on show at Fashion Access.The aim of BOAA is to encourage design and manufacturing excellence and reward it before the discerning public.

Design comes into its own with the Design-A-Bag Competition held and judged online. Itallows participants to submit their design illustrations from anywhere, at any time. The event brings together a global design community, cultivates innovation, and keeps Fashion Access plugged in with talents from various cultures and backgrounds.

Last March the inaugural Global Footwear Retail Conference (GFRC) was held during APLF. It proved a great success as it gave the sold-out audience an insight into footwear retail from a US, China and e-commerce point of view - the world's three largest markets.

The second GFRC will be held during APLF and will reflect the changes that should take place with the advent of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), the growing role of ASEAN and key tax changes in China and the US and how they may impact demand in these major markets. This is an event not to be missed if you are in the footwear business.
