Due to the recent rapid outbreak of COVID-19, in view of the health and safety of our exhibitors and buyers, APLF has made the most difficult decision to postpone the APLF fairs, including Fashion Access to 30 Mar – 1 Apr 2021.

Three finalists submitted a video recording and a design presentation to elaborate their ideas before the final judging ceremony.
Under these circumstances and after several in-depth communications, the organisers, in view of the health and safety of our exhibitors and buyers and the impact on the exhibition, made the hard decision to announce that ACLE will be postponed from 1st – 3rd September 2020 to 31st August– 2nd September 2021 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center.
