The upcoming editions of Yarn Expo Autumn, Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics and two other international textile fairs will be brought forward this year to the end of September from their traditional October dates. As Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics moves from mid-October to the earlier date of 27 – 29 September, so too does Yarn Expo Autumn. They are also joined by the concurrent knitting fair PH Value and fashion garment fair CHIC, in what is the global textile industry’s annual sourcing summit for the autumn / winter season.
