Buyers were making up for time lost during a two-year slow-down in textile buying, said the organisers of the recent Interstoff Asia as, this week, they produced the final analysis of visitor totals to the October session of this Hong Kong-based fabric fair. Now in its fourteenth year, the fair attracted 14,904 visitors from 96 countries, including American delegations from Brooks Brothers, Calvin Klein Donna Karen New York, Polo Ralph Lauren, Levi Strauss and Tommy Hilfiger. The British contingent included teams from Marks & Spencer and Jaeger while buyers from the now global Nike empire were spotted touring the Hong Kong halls.
