EPCH – the organisers of Indian Fashion Jewellery & Accessories Show (IFJAS) will be hosting a virtual fair this year so trade professionals for all over the world can still attend.
Making the decision for the benefit of all stakeholders, IFJAS, which takes place Jun 1-4, has gone digital for 2020.
While design teams and artisans are virtually connected and dishing out relevant products for a Covid-19 and post-pandemic lifestyle, EPCH has been working out ways and means for buyers and sellers to cut overheads and stay safe, yet productively connect.
By going digital, buyers can still explore and find new products to present to their customers online and in stores post-lockdown.
Show organisers says trade professionals will get a “near real and interactive” experience as they digitally view and source new products in real time during the event.
With well-defined displays by leading manufacturers of the finest fashion jewellery and fashion accessories in India, this show is aptly suited to its target visitors – importers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers, chain stores, brand owners, departmental stores, buying houses and agents, mail order companies, potential franchisees, designers & forecasters.
Fascinating innovations and design theories put together with mix metals, pearls, semi-precious stones, vibrant beads, horn, bone & shells, jute, wood, bamboo, terracotta and much more feature in head to toe adornments along with interesting textile based jewellery.
Bijoux, boho chic, statement pieces, geometrics, fluid, layered, mix & match, classic and contemporary are just some of the trends visitors can expect, among collections defining intelligent raw material usage, innovative techniques in the making, intricately hand-crafted or gently machine finished, adorned with the colours from nature or embellished with threads, beads or sequins.
Jewellers will also be able to source components during the show, including a vast rang of ethnic, contemporary, voguish beads, emblems and components that India provides, especially made of glass, wood and stone.
IFJAS brings together manufacturers from Delhi, Agra, Noida, Mumbai, Lucknow, Jaipur, Moradabad, Faridabad, Gurgaon, Firozabad, Kolkata, Varanasi, Amritsar and all those cities as well as manufacturing clusters for fashion jewellery and related products, making the trade appointment a unique opportunity for buyers to explore a well spread product range with fashion jewellery and semi-precious jewellery, as well as accessories such as belts, wallets and handbags.
