The Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan pavilions will be back at Intertextile Apparel, the ready-to-wear fabrics fair, which will be held from October 9–11 in China. China offers significant commercial potential for the foreign supplier due to its sizable population and rising demand for high-quality goods.
Consumer awareness of product value has grown, which drives up demand for higher-quality goods in the Chinese market. In other words, quality and value are taking precedence above pricing, which we think is positive, according to Hiroomi Fujinami, product planning division at Iris Co Ltd.
Numerous Chinese buyers stopped by the Japan Pavilion at the spring edition in March 2021, resulting in contracts that, according to the pavilion’s organizers, Japan Fashion Week Organization, were worth a total of approximately JPY 3.5 billion ($31.9 million) over three days (JFW).
There will be 36 businesses represented in the Japan Pavilion, including two first-time exhibitors. Exclusively made natural and polyester fibers will be on show with the very best original Japanese patterns.
