The third fashion festival of Urumqi, capital of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, will be held from Sept 2 to 6. A number of famous fashion designers from China and other countries, including the Netherlands and France, will be in attendance.

Compared to the previous festivals, this year’s fashion festival has a wider variety of activities and is held during the China-Eurasia Expo period.

Liang Yong, deputy director of the Xinjiang Commission of Economy and Information Technology, said that the fashion festival can take advantage of the platform of the China-Eurasia Expo to increase its influence.

According to Liang, another highlight of the festival is that it has added a 6,000-square-meter textile museum to attract leading textile and apparel industry exhibitors.

The festival involves the 2014 Asia-Europe Fashion Week, the third Xinjiang Women Handicrafts Work Exhibition, the 2014 China Garment Conference and 25 fashion shows.

The 2014 Garment Conference, held by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, China Textile Industry Association and Xinjiang government, is China’s most influential clothing industry conference.

Liang commented that the conference has invited entrepreneurs of the country’s more than 300 famous garment industry brands, including Red Beans, Younger, Seven Wolves and Metersbonwe. After the conference, the directors will meet other cities in Xinjiang to conduct market investigation.
