CHIC Autumn 2016 Shanghai October 11 – 13, 2016

The Fashion Market Place for Fashion Turnover
Chinese Retail Market looking for short-term deliveries, more individual collections, booming accessories

CHIC is the leading fashion trade show in Asia and has been taking place for the past 24 years thus disposing of a longtime experience and a tremendous network in the fashion business. In 2015 the Autumn CHIC was launched, now offering two editions a year with the comprehensive overview on Chinese and international brands. The focus of CHIC spring (March) is fashion for fall/winter and for CHIC autumn it is spring/summer for coming seasons.

The necessity of speeding up in the Chinese retail business requires offering new styles and fashion several times a year. CHIC offers the right date and the right choice of fashion brands from all over the world.

More Specializations of Fashion Segments at CHIC Autumn
The progress is evident: more specializations enable retailers to get the full overview. The areas NEW LOOK (womenswear), PRESTIGE (menswear), KID’S PARADISE (kidswear), SECRET STARS (accessories) or CHIC YOUNG BLOOD will be accompanied by further attractions. IMPULSES, the designer section, will get its own podium and dock with young clubs. With an innovative segment, CHIC is addressing multibrand stores and buyers who want to refresh their product ranges. Chinese trade visitors are looking for individual and different styles. During CHIC spring 2016 it was noted that many retailers are transforming into multibrand stores as consumers wish a larger inspiration of different collections.

A novelty at CHIC in October will be the section of ‘school uniforms’. The number of international and private schools around China is increasing and those schools prefer uniforms to underline their characteristics.

The incorporation of shoes, handbags and suitcases in ‘SECRET STARS’ accentuates the demand of these articles even further.
