We are a casual women’s wear wholesaler from Canada and we have beenselling to small independent stores in Canada and the US for more than 40years. We have never been to either edition of the Hong Kong Fashion Weekbecause the fairs are too late for us. Normally by the time the fair is held,we would be merely weeks away from launching our collections for that season. Ihave come this time for two reasons, the first is to look for new factories, thesecond is to find protection for our business from the US tariffs. One of thecompanies I met through the HKTDC Business Matching service is from Bangladesh,which can export to Canada duty free. We will work with this company forsavings. We have also identified two to three other companies that provide UPCTags, embroidered blouses and hangers. We will likely place test orders for sixto eight styles before committing to a long-term relationship.
