Exhibitors at the August 2013 edition of Margin, which takes place on the 4th & 5th, are able to apply to exhibit free of charge at the IFF show in Tokyo from the 17th to 19th July 2013.

Organised by leading Japanese fashion industry publisher Senken Shimbun (like Drapers or WWD, but bigger; they publish a newspaper daily as well as fortnightly and monthly magazines), the International Fashion Fair (IFF) is the largest trade exhibition in Japan, with 800 exhibitors and 25,000 visitors. The majority of exhibiting brands are naturally Japanese alongside international brands such as February, Happy Socks, and Alpha Industries, exhibiting in the Creator’s Village area for directional labels, looking to meet with Japanese buyers.
Senken Shimbun have regularly visited to report on Margin since the shows started in 2002 and selected Margin as the only UK event to take part in the exchange programme based on the directional offering of fresh talent and new labels.
