FPO SPAIN FASHION Exhibition – 26 & 27 January 2015 – SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA
The Spain Fashion Exhibition gives South Korean buyers, importers and distributors a taste of trends for Spring-Summer 2015.
On 22 and 23 July, ICEX Spain Exports & Investments, in partnership with the Spanish Embassy’s Office for Economic and Commercial Affairs in Seoul, organised the third Spain Fashion Exhibition in the South Korean capital.
One of the strengths of this event is its early appearance on the fashion calendar, giving buyers, importers and distributors first contact with the collections which 23 Spanish companies will be showcasing over the next few months at top European exhibitions.
Best represented is the Spanish footwear sector, with a total of 18 companies taking all the colour of their latest summer collections to Seoul.
South Korea is a strategic destination for Spanish fashion, which is defined by a winning combination of design and quality, reliability in meeting its commitments and the ability to replenish stocks on an immediate basis.
In the first three months of the year, footwear exports to South Korea have grown 100% in volume and 48% in value, compared to the same period last year. In the first quarter, more than 420,000 pairs of shoes were exported, worth €6.7 mill. For the same period, textiles exports rose to €10.668 mill., a year-on-year growth figure of 17% – eloquent figures that reveal the success of Spanish fashion in South Korea.
