Day Three – Great to see all the fashion sourcing professionals

Thanks to the thousands of attendees and partners that came out to support leading exhibitors from around the world at the ATSC (Apparel Textile Sourcing Canada) trade show.

I was impressed by the organizers, the quality of exhibitors, the presentations, the trend area, matchmaking, and the stylish attendees.

Individual Style

It was nice to see all the great unique individual style graced by attendees, exhibitors, and show staff.

Back inside the trade hall, I still had lots of isles to cover to check out all the great exhibitors, as almost every booth had something of interest.

I started my rounds back in China, checking out the latest offerings:

From China, I decided to travel over to Bangladesh to check out the latest denim offerings.

Fashion Show

On Day two in the afternoon, there was a great fashion show put on by the exhibitors and organizers of ATSC that was standing room only as everyone vied to see what was coming down the runway.

The view from the front of the stage with a little surprise:

I decided to get a different perspective by moving over to the front of the stage to check out the runway display of wedding gowns:

I have been to plenty of fashions shows around the world (New York, Hong Kong, and Shanghai) and the ATSC fashion show ranked up there with some of the best. Make sure you follow ATS for future fashion show dates.

Seminars

There were many great seminars on day one on the main stage, but day two, and three was split by the main stage and the fashion lab stage.

As the fashion lab stage was more intimate and personal, I was dazzled by the presentation put on by Anna. She highlighted the importance of building a brand and the essential steps to create a successful line to a packed house.

Well, many people in the audience had there pen and paper ready to write down the intelligence and insights on planning their future collection.

Trend Area

After the presentation, I headed over to the Trend Area to discuss the future of the trend area at the ATSC show.

During our meeting, there were a few handfuls of people taking photos of the inspiration and direction for the fall/winter 2020/21 season.

Watch for the increased presence of the Trend Area at Future ATS shows.

Conclusion

The ATSC show put on a solid performance with quality exhibitors, speakers, and staff highlighting the importance of professionalism with a positive attitude.

If you missed any of the ATS shows, make sure you add them to your future calendar as it is a must-see show for anyone in the fashion business who are creating their own collection or looking to create their own collection(s).

Thanks from everyone at ATSC for your participation, follow the ATS blog for future articles, insights, and intelligence. Stay Amazing!!!
