We are proud to present China's fashion capital to some of the world's premium labels in Novomania's five fashion areas to help the ongoing transformation of China's fashion market."
Those five fashion areas at Novomania are: Denim & Urban, Fashion & Chic, Sports & Street, Shoes & Accessories, and Contemporary & Premium. There is also Innovation & Retail Services – highlighting why Novomania is a must visit!
Nana Lee, Director of LIE by Lie Sang Bong says, "We have high hopes for Novomania as it will be the new platform for our collection to get into the Chinese premium market. I am excited to meet great people there and our Chinese buyers don't need to come to Paris or New York to meet us anymore. We will meet you at Novomania!"
