Fashion Access is delighted to welcome five Brazilian footwear manufacturers to the September fair this year. After the extensive TV coverage and exposure of the Soccer World Cup in Brazil two years ago and this year’s highly successful Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, the image of Brazil as a stylish, colourful destination and youthful country will be implanted in the minds of Asian consumers. This will help pique their interest for Brazilian designed footwear.
