Press Views

"The experience at CENTRESTAGE was an extraordinary opportunity to look into the fashion scene in Asia. I was impressed by the local brands, such as IDISM, LOOM LOOP, SUN=SEN, phenotypsetter, 112 mountainyam, Blind by JW. The freshness of their style, the approach to the materials, the experience with prints are a real joy for anybody who loves fashion. The chance to meet the designers in person during the fair is another excellent reason to visit CENTRESTAGE, in which visitors can have the opportunity to get insight on fashion brands from different countries and regions, like the Chinese mainland, Vietnam, Korea and Japan. The Redress Design Award 2018, which focused on the prevailing sustainable fashion trends in the fashion industry nowadays, and the fashion forums taking place during the show make CENTRESTAGE an absolute highlight on the agenda of fashion professionals."

Exhibitors’ Echo

"CENTRESTAGE is a good platform for Macao brands to introduce and promote themselves to the world. We have been here for the second time. This year, we have debuted our crossover collection with the US brand SHARK Sport Watch. As part of the lifestyle, timepieces and fashion are closely related categories. Therefore, both of us have taken this opportunity to debut our crossover line of watches and apparel at CENTRESTAGE and Hong Kong Watch and Clock Fair. Concurrently held under the same roof, these two events apparently show strong synergy."

Vincent Cheang, Founder,
WORKER PLAYGROUND, Macao

 

"Having participated in the show for three years in a row, we keep coming back to CENTRESTAGE to introduce our French chic, sophistication and elegance to Asian women. Through which, we got a client from an upscale chain department store located in Beijing and Shanghai. One of our existing high-end clients in Hong Kong always comes here to select new styles from our latest collection, as CENTRESTAGE is scheduled ahead of other fashion events in the buying season. Buyers attend the show to have a preview of latest collections, so suppliers can have more time in preparation for actual production."

"In the first year at CENTRESTAGE, we met with DOXA, the Swiss brand exhibiting at the HKTDC Watch and Clock Fair concurrently held under the same roof. I took the initiative to make a crossover collection of pair watches with the Swiss brand, enabling my customers to mix-and-match with different gown designs. We made our comeback with the launch of our latest crossover collection this year. I also get a good chance to present my views on upcoming trends at the seminar namely "Fashion, Watch and Jewellery: Their Irresistible Relationship". CENTRESTAGE apparently grows up with a definite image: an event for original and licensed brands. So, it attracts buyers around the globe, especially from emerging markets like the Chinese mainland and South East Asian countries, to come here for spotting new brands. The zonal arrangement of brands also allows buyers to reach their target brands easily."

Dorian Ho, CEO & Creative Director,
Doriano International Limited, Hong Kong

 
 

Buyers' Commentary

"Splash operates a total of 250 fashion retail stores in the United Arab Emirates and other countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Lebanon, India, Pakistan, Egypt and Tanzania. In UAE alone, we are running 52 stores. I’ve found some very nice collections at CENTRESTAGE including three Hong Kong brands, namely ANGUS TSUI, ARTISAN and Dorian Ho Collection. The designs showcased by Korean brands NAVY STUDIO and 235LABORATORY are also attracting. We are exploring cooperation to acquire their designs to sell under Splash brand in our stores. Further talks will be held with these brands for business development. CENTRESTAGE is an excellent show featuring a lot of promising designs. I hope to visit the show again to find even more brands."

Mukesh Kumar, Buyer,
Splash, Landmark Gulf Group, the United Arab Emirates

 

"Global Link is a luxury fashion retailer in Vietnam currently operating 4 stores in Ho Chi Minh City and one store in Hanoi. We carry about 100 high-end and contemporary brands, mostly from Europe and the United States. I have found several young designer brands at CENTRESTAGE this year. The ready-to-wear collections of tibaeg and GREELILOUS from Korea are well designed. I really like the cutting and fabric materials used by HARRISON WONG in his latest designs, and the creative collections of ANGUS TSUI. REDEMPTIVE is an interesting brand I spotted at FASHIONALLY Presentation on the second day of the show. TAK LEE is another Hong Kong brand offering unique designs with good potential for development. I am looking forward to carrying the designs of HARRISON WONG and ANGUS TSUI that appear to be most suitable to our customers’ preferences. The show features even more promising design brands this year that meet our requirements. It like it very much."

Vo Thu Trang, Vice Director,
Global Link Corporation, Vietnam

 

"In business for 5 years, Atvs Fashion is running a boutique store in Moscow, selling various collections and accessories of over 15 brands, mainly European brands. We strive to introduce something new to customers and CENTRESTAGE offers a good platform to source new designer brands. This is my first visit and I’ve already found some extraordinary jewellery from Korean brand NJLIDIA with very nice futuristic designs. I hope to distribute the brand in the Russian market. The jewellery items showecased by Thai brand ROCK Me Jewelry are also appealing. I am going to buy some pieces first to test customers’ feedback. Another brand that I like is L.I.S.A. Life IS an Attitude. Those men’s and women’s collections come in natural and stylish designs. I intend to place an order of 10-15 pieces at the start. I believe Asian brands will do very well in our market. This show is definitely the place to find new designer labels."

Stanislava Kinakh, Buyer,
Atvs Fashion Group, Russia
