The co-located events, China Sourcing Fairs: Fashion Accessories, Garments & Textiles and Underwear & Swimwear, as well as India Sourcing Fair: Garments & Accessories, will cap a busy October trade-show schedule for Global Sources, which also hosted electronics, mobile electronics and gifts & home products events this month.

Tommy Wong, President of Global Sources Exhibitions, elaborated on the show's advantages. "Buyers love the ease of sourcing many product lines under one roof," he said. "We have Asia's largest selection of scarves, a new sportswear pavilion and fast growth in our finished-garment and fabric lines. Some lines have double-digit growth since our show last October. This mirrors the robust state of the global apparel industry which is expected to be worth more than US$1,560 billion by 2017."

Wong notes that the show is offering more than just the latest merchandise: "We are once again staging fashion parades with professional models to spotlight products that truly capture the spirit of coming trends. Our complimentary conference program is always highly attended, and we are also presenting show-floor demonstrations on how to accessorize with scarves and how to recognize different scarf fabrics."

Among the many high-profile buyers pre-registered to attend the show are Bestseller Fashion Group, Carrefour, Folli Follie, Giorgio Armani, Landmark Group, Le Chateau, Li & Fung, Nitori, Ralph Lauren, Samsonite, Sears, Triumph, Target Sourcing, Tesco, Wiley Accessories and Woolworths.
