EUROPEAN exhibitors at this year's Hongkong Fashion Week aim to use the exposition to expand markets for a wide range of products. Manufacturers from the continent that helped to create style will be promoting garments, accessories, iron-on transfers and yarns. Eleonora Scaramucci, who is exhibiting for the first time this year, will show her collection of women's fashions and accessories. Her approach has been to highlight the classic look, with eye-catching jewelled buttons and colourful trims. The designs use natural fabrics such as silk, cashmere and wool, teamed with matching accessories. She hopes to sell this year's collection to Asia, having already established her name in Europe, Japan and the United States. Italian design company Elen Tex SRL, will show lycra ladies' casual wear, including jeans and leotards. The firm, established in Europe, the Middle East, Japan and Taiwan, also hopes to use Hongkong as a showcase for the Hongkong, China and North America markets. Cuttan from The Netherlands specialises in China-made knitwear with silkscreen prints. Its products are mostly exported to Europe and include baby wear and jogging suits. Cuttan has been in Hongkong for 11/2 years but wants to expand in Europe. The British firm D-Mop produces trendy accessories for the Asian market and will be appearing at Fashion Week for the second year. Swarovski from Austria has been at Fashion Week for the last five years, exhibiting iron-on transfers and trimmings. The crystal manufacturer will highlight its 1950s rock 'n' roll and all-over designs. New motifs include wildcats, the alphabet and snowflakes, in new colours and finishes. The German yarn company STAHL specialises in high-quality worsted yarns for machine knitting and exports worldwide. Its latest industrial yarns and yarn trends for hand-knitting will be on display in the Wool Gallery during the week.
