Colombiamoda, Colombia’s largest fashion trade fair, saw expected sourcing contracts nearly double to $250 million this year as a growing number of international buyers were drawn to the event, held in Medellín from July 23 to 25.
Last year, Colombiamoda saw proceeds from potential manufacturing business reach $137 million. But the addition of two new sourcing fairs — Textiles2 and Moda para el Mundo (“Fashion for the world”) — added $46 million and $18 million, respectively, to this year’s results.
