A press conference for 2017 Xiamen Fashion Week was held at Hyatt Regency Xiamen Wuyuanwan on September 28.

According to the press conference, the 2017 Xiamen Fashion Week is scheduled to open on November 15-19, covering four major sections: industrial connection, fashion demonstration, shopping guide and the city of fashion.
Themed “Xiamen•Show the World”, the event is aiming to forge Xiamen as an international city of fashion, targeting young consumer groups.
“Xiamen has a unique advantage in fashion industry, based on the rapid development in the industries of sportswear, menswear, fashion catering and art,”said Wen Bo, director of the fashion week committee. “The just-concldued BRICS summit has drawn global attention to Xiamen, and now it's the best time to show Xiamen's fashion image to the world.”
