Fashion Access is an important sourcing fair for bags and leather products, including small leather goods, footwear, leather garments, travelware, and gloves. In recent years, the fair has also seen the increased presence of fashion brands offering the full range of “head-to-toe” fashions, including non-leather bags and shoes, fashion jewellery, hats, shawls and scarves, eyewear, luggage and other fashion items. This September 2014 fair has nine country pavilions featuring established fashion OEMs as well as young and up-and-coming brands from China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Italy, Korea, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan. Korea is a leading force in the world of Asian fashion. With its participation organised through the Korean Tanners’ association, Fashion Access visitors can look forward to some fabulous collections of Korea-made leather bags and footwear. Buyers can also look forward to meeting 74 first-time exhibitors, including exciting design-led brands from Australia, Italy, Japan and Thailand.

Medium to high-end fashion brands show off their design and production capabilities in a bid to capture more foreign markets, particularly global department stores, online stores, major distributors, as well as fashion boutiques.

As in all their fairs, APLF Ltd offers a host of trends-related activities to benefit all buyers and exhibitors. These include the Fashion Trends Space, a preview of colour and style directions for Spring-Summer 2015; the Material Trends Space that provides advanced information on the colour and material trends for Autumn-Winter 2015-16 fashions; and fashion trends seminars that offer exciting glimpses of the fashion must-haves for the seasons ahead.
Exhibitors at Fashion Access are also given recognition for product design excellence through the Best of APLF Awards (BOAA).
