Shanghai: global textile value chain pulled together at last week’s Intertextile Apparel
Spring’s much-anticipated global apparel flagship ended on a high note on 30 March 2023. Over the course of the three-day fair, the first major textile event since China became more accessible, nearly 3,000 exhibitors from 22 countries and regions welcomed nearly 100,000 trade buyers from 101 countries and regions. With a worldwide reputation for its product diversity and internationality, the Spring Edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics reaffirmed its position as the ideal platform for the whole textile value chain to assemble. International exhibitors hoping to reconnect with domestic buyers confirmed their goals had been accomplished, while participants were impressed with the fringe programme, and benefitted from the extensive sourcing opportunities available at the concurrent Yarn Expo Spring and Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles Spring.
Intertextile Shanghai Apparel to kick off on Tuesday and cater to hunger for face-to-face business
Following a period of reduced in-person interaction, the textile industry has been yearning to reconnect in China. Welcoming nearly 3,000 exhibitors, next week’s Spring Edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics will feature a wide spectrum of fabrics and accessories at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai). Overseas exhibitors have been eager to physically meet and collaborate with domestic buyers, and after China eased its travel restrictions, they now have the opportunity to do so. With the fair taking place from 28 – 30 March 2023, a series of seminars, forums and panel discussions will be held concurrently to further promote industry development.
Intertextile Apparel’s fringe programme – expert insights on industry’s evolution
With the international and domestic textile sector once more able to congregate in Shanghai, key players can discover new, expert-predicted fashion trends and innovative ideas, and collaborate to create positive industry momentum. Running in conjunction with the Spring Edition from 28 – 30 March 2023 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), the fringe programme will supplement visitors’ overall sourcing experience. Featuring experts from around the world, over 35 seminars, forums and panel discussions will take place during the three days at Textile Dialogue, Forum Space, and Talking Point, the fair’s fringe event zones.
Intertextile Apparel’s strategic zoning promotes sourcing efficiency across global product range
The Chinese luxury goods market has been expanding in recent years, and this is reflected in the increased demand for high-end apparel – consumers buying top-quality attire, bespoke services and unique patterns are growing in number. With Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition taking place from 28 – 30 March 2023, the fairground at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) will be strategically set up for worldwide exhibitors to meet this rising demand. The leading textile platform will feature a broad spectrum of products, grouped together in different zones to ensure a convenient sourcing experience and create more opportunities for collaboration.
Sustainable and functional fabrics in the spotlight at Intertextile Apparel
When it comes to fabric development or new ways of thinking about manufacturing, more and more the common thread between sustainability and functional fabrics is innovation. Driven by a desire for greener products, especially among China’s younger generations, the innovations at next month’s Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition are set to include a full range of newly developed sustainable denim, functional fabrics, accessories and more across its different product zones. Set to be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) from 28 – 30 March, the fair’s comprehensive, cutting-edge product showcase attracts quality buyers and enables suppliers to tap into China’s rapidly developing market.
SYSTEM SHAKE-UP – POST-PANDEMIC TRENDS IN THE CHINESE TEXTILE MARKET
With textiles no exception, the pandemic has impacted industries and lifestyles on an unprecedented scale. It has led to the global emergence of new ways of doing business, and turned several pre-existing inclinations into widespread trends. Since Chinese consumers are embracing and driving many of these worldwide movements, players operating in the country’s textile field have had to adapt. For some firsthand knowledge of the Chinese market’s trends, pandemic-related and otherwise, Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd spoke to several prominent international and domestic exhibitors at the recent Spring Edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics. Key highlights from these discussions include the rise of sportswear and athleisure, the rebounding demand for luxury fabrics, and the growing importance of green fashion.
Transparency, sustainability, and social responsibility – the key links needed for a circular textile value chain
With sustainability the popular topic of today’s marketing communications, it is not always easy to see the substance behind it. Stakeholders can face difficulties identifying whether textile companies are truly taking steps towards sustainability, or using buzzwords to greenwash their brand. How can the industry honestly advance towards a circular future? In advance of the recently held Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition, Messe Frankfurt spoke with three regular exhibitors, Eastman Chemical Company, Huafu Top Dyed Melange Yarn, and TESTEX AG, to get some clarity on the matter.

Sustainability – how is the worldwide movement being perceived in China?
As international exhibitors gathered at Intertextile Apparel’s Spring Edition in March 2021, sustainability was a main theme not just for its dedicated product zone, All About Sustainability, but also a frequently brought-up topic across the fair’s halls. With many newly developed sustainable products on display to visitors who came to the fair with this in mind, fairgoers had much to say on how this worldwide movement is gaining traction in China.
