    Hong Kong has always been considered as a global hub for fur, thanks to advancements in tailoring technique and creative fur design introduced by local furriers.

    Overall 35th International Hong Kong Fur & Fashion Fair was a reasonably fair event given the recent market conditions and strong dollar rates against the Russian rubble and other currencies.

    The attendance was about 20 – 25% less than that of last year’s. The visitor’s number was not available yet, at the time of the press, but it was expected there would be fewer buyers this year, before the fair started.
