HCM CITY — The hottest fashion products and designs from exhibitors and rising designers from Việt Nam will be on display at Hong Kong's largest one-stop sourcing fashion show to be held from October 27-30. 

More than 35 leading Vietnamese designers and manufacturers of garments, textiles and fashion accessories as well as garment-related industries will be participating in the Global Sources Fashion Show in Hong Kong.

The emerging Vietnamese fashion brands include, Emwear, Haberman, Hồng Ty, Cocosin and Fashion Link, according to Global Sources, the event’s organiser.

A fashion parade will be organised as part of the show exclusively for rising Vietnamese designers to showcase their latest fashion collections.

In recent years Vietnamese fashion brands have strengthened their brands on the global fashion stage because of their "great design as well as OEM (original equipment manufacturing) capability", according to the organiser.

Vietnamese exhibitors include members of the Việt Nam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS), Việt Nam National Textile and Garment Group, and Handicraft and Wood Industry Association of HCM City.

Vietnamese goods at the show will include apparel, fashion jewelry, underwear, swimwear, bags, luggage, scarves, footwear and fabrics.

The fair will feature verified suppliers from major fashion manufacturing hubs, including Việt Nam, Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Bangladesh, India, Indonesia and the Philippines.

More than 1,000 exhibitors worldwide are expected to promote their designs and brands at the four-day event. With over 2,000 booths of products, the fair is expected to welcome 12,000 buyers from 110 countries and territories. 

The event will also feature industry-related conferences, including a workshop on how to source effectively from Việt Nam, according to the organiser. 

Last year, the textile and garment sector earned US$36 billion from exports, up 16 per cent year-on-year, making Việt Nam one of the world’s three biggest exporters of textiles and apparel, according to VITAS. 

This year the sector has set a target of $40 billion in exports, up 11 per cent year-on-year. 

The sector has set a target of more than $60 billion worth of exports by 2025. The industry is expected to enjoy a trade surplus of $20 billion, and create jobs for 2.85 million workers. 

Textile exports during the first three quarters of this year reached $29.2 billion, a 9.1 per cent year-on-year increase, according to figures released by the General Department of Customs.
