On March 11, the 10th Daegu International Textile Fair ‘Preview in Daegu’ and large scale fashion show ‘2011 Daegu collection’ were held in Daegu.
I went to General Distribution Complex, EXCO to watch the exhibition of Daegu International Textile Fair. ‘Preview in Daegu’ was held for 3 days from 9th Mar within 296 companies from 8 countries in the largest scale than ever. Exhibition Hall was located in the 1st, 3rd and 5th floor displaying various product lines from yarn and fabric to functional and industrial materials.
Lots of people were standing in line to see the Textile Fair when we entered into the EXCO building. Only those with passes were allowed in. The registration desk issued the free admission pass after simple paperwork. Many of visitors were foreign visitors.
I headed to Korea Fashion Centre on the opposite side of EXCO after watching exhibition. Fashion Centre was decorated with banners and posters to announce the Daegu Collection 2011.
The venue was crowded with spectators and more than half of them viewed the collection. I was surprised at the enormous popularity of Daegu collection.
On that day, the designer Bok Ho, CHOI from Daegu held his 2011 F/W season fashion show. The music direction to every dress concept was very impressive. Beautiful finale was astonishing.
By the end of the show, I found familiar face in there. Co-president of IAAF World Championships Daegu, Bum Il KIM was greeting peoples after the show.
This year is the 10th anniversary of the Daegu International Textile Fair and the 23rd anniversary of Daegu Collection. It was every meaningful opportunity to see the real aspect of Daegu’s textile and fashion industry. If you are interested in this field, you’d better check next year’s event.
