Kopenhagen Fur supports Guangdong
18 August 2010Markets
Shenzhen International Fur & Leather Fashion Expo
took place from 12-14 August. This is the only fur fair in southern
China and was initiated by Guangdong Province Fur Association three
years ago. Kopenhagen Fur's presence at the fair attracts many
fashion companies to look into the fascinating world of fur.
Exhibitors are mainly local fur manufacturers and dressing factories. In China, Shenzhen and Guangdong Province at large is known for high-quality garment production and fur production. There are more than 1,000 fur companies in the province. Shenzhen International Fur & Leather Fashion Expo comes on the heels of Shenzhen International Fashion Fair, the second largest fashion fair in China. Therefore, a lot of fashion companies turned from exhibitors at the fashion fair into visitors at the fur fair.
It is the first time for Kopenhagen Fur to be present at the fair. The premier location of the Kopenhagen Fur stand is just in line with its popularity and leading position in the industry. The unique and innovative design of the stand with fur styles from Tsinghua University-Kopenhagen Fur Studio and many distinctive fur technique samples were well received by visitors.
- Through Shenzhen Fur Fair, we hope to bring more business opportunities for the local fur companies. Kopenhagen Fur's presence at the fair is a big boost to the development of the local industry, says Liu Weiong, the secretary general of the fur fair.
Kopenhagen Fur formalized the cooperation with Guandong Province Fur Association earlier this year and has started to offer trainings to local manufacturers.
