Around 600 exhibitors will join Accessories Vision, the comprehensive accessory product zone in hall 6.2 at Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, from 25 – 27 September. This year, new exhibitors from Cambodia and South Africa will join the 25th Autumn Edition of the fair, further diversifying the international exhibitor line-up, which also includes suppliers from Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Taiwan and more, as well as leading Chinese companies.

Accessories such as zippers, buttons, hooks and decorations are important factors that indicate a garment’s quality to consumers. Recent high street fashion trends, such as oversized buttons, have also seen accessories play a large role in design. The Accessories Vision product zone offers visitors access to a wide variety of suppliers, both Chinese and international, who will showcase a huge range of high-quality products at competitive prices. The zone also includes options essential for smart branding, such as eco-friendly tags and labels.

While big names like 3M, Avery Dennison, Ideal Fastener and Shimada Shoji are ready to return, along with key members of Button & Garment Accessories Industry Chamber, new exhibitors include:

  • Huashengda Zipper (Cam), from Cambodia. They specialise in zippers, including metal, plastic, water-repellent, functional and custom-made items using their patented structure design, which can include brand logos and symbols for better brand identification. They will showcase their new patented tooth-shaped a-carve® series.
  • From South Africa, Prime Fastener will introduce their buttons for denim and sew-on buttons, as well as rivets, press studs, hook & bar fasteners, pronged snap fasteners and eyelets.
