Major markets grew and fashionable items were in high demand at the world’s
largest global fur trading platform which drew to a close on February 18th

The Fair concluded with US$139 million of confirmed orders, a growth of 20% over last year and witnessed a turnaround in this year’s global fur market, with a sharp rebound in demand. An exceptionally all-rounded range of exhibits, ranging from raw materials to fur apparel and accessories were in the limelight.

The total exhibition space reached 30,000 square meters to congregate over 210 local and overseas exhibitors from 13 countries and regions, including two national pavilions from Germany and Greece.

Exhibitors reflected that business was above expectation, all markets recorded a growth comparing with last year. The exhibitors from overseas were particularly pleased with the result. Product popularity has shifted to favor fashionable items, a positive sign for the always creative Hong Kong fur industry.

The glamorous Fur Gala 2017 proposed the highly anticipated presentation “An Evening of Moments” with 15 original collections presented by local furriers that impressed the audience with over a hundred unique fur looks that celebrated the romantic, passionate, glamorous and cheerful charm of the opulent material and its versatility. From the romantic and sporty silhouettes, to urban-chic styles and gorgeous evening gowns, every piece complements modern femininity with its sensational visual effect and luxury texture. Amongst the newest collections, two men’s collections were debuted this year, showcasing the urban elegance for men.
