Discover influential trends from the Asia-Pacific region at Intertextile Apparel
While New York, Milan, Paris and London have traditionally been seen as the most prominent fashion capitals in the world, apparel brands and consumers are increasingly turning to Asian trends. Although Tokyo has long been known for stand-out street style, it’s only recently that the “Seoul effect” – a rise of South Korean popular culture, such as K-pop – has led to even more globally influential trends from the Asia-Pacific region. Visitors at this month’s Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics are encouraged to check out country & region pavilions from Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and Thailand in hall 5.1, in addition to pavilions from India and Pakistan in hall 4.1, and two Taiwan Pavilions in halls 4.1 and 5.1.
