HONG KONG — The 21st edition of Hong Kong Fashion Week wrapped its four-day run late last week, as attendees found underutilized Chinese factories actively seeking deals from even smaller, developing brands.
The openness of Chinese factories suggests a new flexibility in price and production levels. One buyer looking to establish her own clothing line with contacts cemented at the fair, Hong Kong-based Russian Anna Leonardo, noted that a generally quieter mood of the week was working to her advantage.
