Intertextile Apparel concludes: digital, sustainable and functional trends shine amidst boost in internationality
With strong business results and a 17% increase in international visitors from spring, the much-anticipated Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Autumn Edition successfully wrapped up last week. Nearly 4,000 exhibitors from 27 countries and regions welcomed 95,000 buyers from 117 countries and regions, underscoring the fair’s continued international reach. Digitalisation, sustainability and functional fashion, pillars that are currently redefining the industry, emerged as dominant themes across the fairground: whether it be biodegradable raw materials, or the first-to-market artificial intelligence system. This gave buyers a comprehensive sourcing experience, supplemented by over 40 seminars and forums and the concurrent Yarn Expo Autumn.
Intertextile Apparel opens next Monday with nearly 4,000 exhibitors on show
The world’s most influential apparel fabrics and accessories trade event, Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, will open its Autumn Edition on Monday, 28 August. With expectations high, nearly 4,000 international and domestic exhibitors from 27 countries and regions including Argentina, Belgium, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Singapore, Thailand, The Netherlands, the UK, and the US, just to name a few, will gather at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) for a productive three days of business. High quality fabrics and accessories will be on display in the 240,000 sqm hall space, with 9 thematic halls designated to meet various sourcing needs. Buyers can also visit Yarn Expo Autumn which is held concurrently, while over 40 seminars and forums will be conducted to enrich participants’ experiences.
Sustainable-functional products on show and on-trend at two of Intertextile Apparel’s standout zones
With each passing year, evolving trends have seen fashion consumers becoming more environmentally conscious, and increasingly demanding transparency and social responsibility in the textile supply chain. This uncompromising demand, working hand-in-hand with circular legislature, has accelerated the development of eco-friendly fabrics and resource-conscious manufacturing approaches. With sustainability a factor in their purchasing decisions, China’s large, emerging market for performance fabrics is driven by a new generation of consumers purchasing more athleisure and sportswear. Consequently, much foot traffic is expected at All About Sustainability (Hall 5.1) and Functional Lab (Hall 4.1) at the upcoming Autumn Edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics. With the fair set to take place from 28 – 30 August 2023 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), exhibitors at both zones will be showcasing innovative functional textiles with sustainable elements.
Top European exhibitors with diverse offerings on show at Intertextile Apparel
Set to meet growing demand for deluxe fabrics and bespoke services due to Chinese consumers’ rising purchasing power, a wide range of European-designed apparel fabrics will be on display at this year’s Autumn Edition. With the fair taking place from 28 – 30 August 2023 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), Hall 5.1’s SalonEurope, Premium Wool Zone, and Verve for Design are expected to be high-traffic zones. In addition, multiple country and region pavilions and group pavilions have confirmed their participation to grasp the opportunities arising from the fair’s numerous buyers. Meanwhile, fairgoers can fulfil further upstream sourcing at the co-located Yarn Expo Autumn in Hall 8.2.
CONTRADICTION – Intertextile Apparel reveals Directions trends for Autumn / Winter 2024-25
While Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Autumn Edition focuses on delivering certainty in the realm of business results, it will also embrace the theme of uncertainty in a changing world to inspire its latest trend forecast – CONTRADICTION. This year’s Intertextile Directions Trend Guide captures the essence of this theme with four key trends: PURIST, NAIVE, HYPNOTIC and SPECTACULAR. From 28 – 30 August, trade buyers can seek inspiration for next season’s vogue at the Intertextile Directions Trend Forum in Hall 5.1 at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai).
Blurring the lines between functional and comfortable wear
Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics has always served as a launch pad for international brands to introduce their new products to the Chinese market.

Intertextile exhibitors find opportunities in a time of crisis

The future of fashion? At Intertextile, it’s communication and collaboration
Global climate targets and powerful consumer action are a major influence on the future of fashion. And as one of the largest trading platforms for apparel fabrics in the world, what role does Intertextile play in facilitating sustainability in fashion? This report takes a look from different perspectives from the industry, each represented at the 25th Autumn Edition of the fair in September 2019.
Exhibitors connect with hundreds of Chinese fashion brands at Intertextile Shanghai & Shenzhen’s Japan Pavilions
“Made in Japan” is a popular selling point across many consumer goods categories in China – cosmetics, stationery and homeware to name a few – and this demand also extends to the apparel textile industry. The Japan Pavilion is now well established at both Intertextile Pavilion Shenzhen – the next edition of which takes place from 4 to 6 July – and Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, and continues to draw large crowds at every edition of both fairs. This prompts a key question: every textile producing country has its specialties, but what can be learnt from the phenomenal success of Japanese exhibitors at Intertextile?
