Fashion is considered a national
passion in Italy. Be it clothes, shoes or fashion accessories,
the Italian products have always captured the minds of fashion
conscious men and women around the world. The situation is no
different across the Middle East and especially the UAE as Italy
is ranked amongst the top ten trading partners of the country.
The Italian exports to the UAE amounted to a massive 2.5 billion
euros in 2005 and include jewellery, clothes, accessories and
shoes amongst others. The Middle East region has witnessed a 28%
increase in the exports from Italy, which is expected to grow
even more over the next 2-3 years.
Motexha, the Middle East's largest sourcing platform for
textiles, garments, leather and fashion accessories has always
witnessed an active participation from Italy. We have received a
significant interest from the Italian companies to participate
at Motexha as they look ahead to expand their market in the
Middle East region. Also take a look at the latest Exhibition
News for additional updates on the Italian participation.
At the same time lingerie is turning out to
be a major import in the UAE and Saudi Arabian markets.
According to the statistics revealed by European Fashion and
Textile Export Council (EFTEC), the two countries account for
77% of the Europe's total lingerie brand exports to the Gulf
followed by Kuwait at 16%.
The 30th edition of
Motexha is scheduled from March 31st - April 2nd, 2008 at
