The TIS event is punctuated with Taiwanese designers and their creative philosophies, as well as pieces from Japanese, Hong-Kong, Korean, and other designers of varying nationalities. A total of 145 brands and 208 booths was present. The theme of this year’s show, a sustainable fashion future, was recognizable in each of the looks, each simultaneously futuristic and emanating eco-awareness. Garments of royal-colored furs mixed with bright plaids and oh-so-many textures valiantly stood out as the models walked. Upbeat sounds, like a waterfall over a riverbed of plastic, accompanied the models down the catwalk. The opening ceremony was hosted by the Taiwan Textile Federation. The Federation Secretary-general, Huang Wei-chi opened the ceremony with an inspiring reminder, that Taipei IN Style is designed to give Taiwanese designers exposure, to further enhance the image of Taiwan and Asia, while enriching the regional and global market.
