“2018 China International Fabrics Design Competition” & “2018 China International Fabrics Creation Competition”


The China International Fabrics DESIGN Competition and China International Fabrics CREATION Competition are the most authoritative competitions in the Chinese textile industry. They are designed to find and cultivate design talent as well as contribute innovative design expertise to the textile industry.

As the only professional design competition in the Chinese textile fabric sector, both competitions will join with Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics. The competitions, though held separately, will become an important part of the fair. The integration of the competition with the fair is to realise the correlation between art and technology and to connect creative ideas with the market.
