The show’s popular projects and seminars attracted a variety of attendees from brands to designers. And 3,200 visitors attended Interfilière Hong Kong’s colorful and trend-inspired show.

From the FITNESS IN THE PARC-themed trend forum which gave the designers and buyers a clear overview of the latest trends in the bodyfashion industry; up to the pioneering collaboration between Eurovet, HKIAIA-member manufacturers and Concepts Paris for the CREATIVE LAB which showcased through prototypes the longings of the New Women.

The Eco-System showcase gave each visitor the possibility to use their 5 senses and learn more about the life-cycle of textile, apparel and the impact it all has on mother earth.

The showcase also profiled some ecological prototypes, using the recycled and sustainable fabrics and products of exhibitors, created by the graduate students of the ACE institute of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The project was coorganised by Eurovet and the French Knitwear and Lingerie Federation. It was greatly received by exhibitors and visitors as sustainability is a hot topic in every company today.
