As Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics celebrates its 25th anniversary later this month, the fringe programme will focus on three key topics that shape the future of apparel and the textile trade industry. Design trends, technology and sustainability will be the key themes over the fair’s three days, featuring Shanghai’s first ever FASHIONSUSTAIN conference, a more comprehensive trend forum, a new Consumer Trend discussion and a special event from the Licensing China fair, which debuts in early 2020.
