Our complimentary conference programme is always highly attended, and we are also presenting show-floor demonstrations on how to accessorize with scarves and how to recognize different scarf fabrics.”

Among the many high-profile buyers pre-registered to attend the show are Bestseller Fashion Group, Carrefour, Folli Follie, Giorgio Armani, Landmark Group, Le Chateau, Li & Fung, Nitori, Ralph Lauren, Samsonite, Sears, Triumph, Target Sourcing, Tesco, Wiley Accessories and Woolworths.
