The Bangkok International Fashion Fair and Bangkok International Leather Fair 2006 (BIFF& BIL 2006), organized by the Thai Ministry of Commerce’s Department of Export Promotion, will return again this year from September 27 to October 1, 2006, under the theme of ‘A Brave New World of Fabulous Fashion’, at the Bangkok International Exhibition Centre (BITEC). Complimenting the Thai government’s ambitious plans to establish Bangkok as one of the fashion capitals of the world, the event will provide a platform for aspiring and leading designers, manufacturers and suppliers from all over Asia to showcase their innovative designs, ready-to-wear apparel, accessories and leathergoods.

The event is expected to draw over 900 exhibitors. It will also incorporate special showcases to further reflect the themes, such as the Young Designers Room, which will feature future ‘brave’ fashion designs and trends in both the clothing and leather industries from the creativity of Thailand’s next generation of designers.
