Apparel makers from home and abroad have signed up for a fashion week to be held from June 13 to 19 in Kunming, capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province, the organizer said Thursday.



More than 40 clothing enterprises will showcase ethnic costumes of nationalities including Yi, Miao and Dai. Yi's embroidering stunned the 2019 Shanghai Fashion Week early last month and will hit the stage at New York Fashion Week in September.


Well-known folk costume brands of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam along the Mekong River, the Chinese stretch of which is called the Lancang River, will also make an appearance during the upcoming fashion week.


Major events of the Kunming fashion week include design shows, clothing releases, investment promotions and cultural exchange activities, combining ethnic traditions with fashionable elements.


A forum and round-table conferences on the inheritance, innovation and development of folk costumes will be held.

Lead apparel makers in the country will pair up with ethnic costume enterprises in Yunnan to promote the industrialization of the latter.
