HONG KONG — The rising buying power of Chinese consumers and a corresponding drop-off in European demand was readily apparent at the latest Interstoff Asia fabric fair.
Suppliers at the show, who were mostly from China, noted a surge in domestic Chinese buyers over the last two years. At the same time, order sizes from American and particularly European buyers have become smaller and less frequent, they said.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
