The Ministry of Commerce and the private sector are to host Thailand Fashion Expo 2010 from October 20-26 at Bangkok department stores around Ratchaprasong intersection area.

Commerce Minister Pornthiva Nakasa said the expo will be under the theme of "Gateway To World Fashion In Asia" in order to promote Bangkok as Asia's fashion hub.

The event will be held at CentralWorld, Siam Paragon, and Gaysorn Plaza, showcasing more than 40 fashion shows to demonstrate the potential of the Thai fashion industry.

Trade negotiations will be promoted throughout the seven-day fair among participants and buyers from leading malls worldwide and overseas importers.

Designers joining the event include world-class British designer Vivienne Westwood and Thai designer Koi Suwannagate whose collections impress the United States' first lady Michelle Obama, as well as worldwide fashion experts and academics.

As there will be over 300 foreign brands and more than 100 buyers joining the expo, Ms Pornthiva said she believed the Thai fashion industry will partly help push up Thai exports to grow 19 per cent annually as targeted and enhance Thailand's fashion to penetrate the markets of ASEAN, the Association of South East Asian Nations and six other countries, China, India, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand (ASEAN + 6).

Meanwhile, MCOT president Tanawat Wansom promised there will be a reality show, "The Designer", to be aired nationwide on Modernine TV so as to promote the public updates of such event.
