HONG KONG — The weak retail environment in Europe could be felt in Hong Kong at the APLF Fashion Access accessories fair with vendors reporting significant declines in sales volumes.
The fair, which took place Sept. 27 to 29 at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, was fairly quiet with light foot traffic. Vendors said they saw regular clients, but were finding it difficult to find new ones.
