Our trip to china went pretty well. We visited textile wholesale markets and factories in Chang’an town, Humen town and Guangzhou. Our mission was to look for new fabrics for our Autumn and Winter collection. They had all sorts of fabrics ranging from faux leather/fur to sequence to cotton to nylon, almost any kind of fabric that you can think of. Fabric swatches were all free and we were able to take as many as we needed. Besides fabrics, there were also a whole lot of supplies such as zippers, buttons, chains, metal frame clasp…etc. How could I resist! I ended up buying lots of colorful zippers and faux leather for my personal projects as they are 3 times the price in Japan!
