It is worth mentioning that, in addition to the fabrics jointly developed by well-known textile brands and designers that are shown each year, the materials science giant BenQ Materials can also be spotted at the Young Talent show held on October 8, unveiling 24 fashionable garments made with Xpore - a sustainable and functional brand under BenQ Materials. Chairman and President of BenQ Materials, Z.C. Chen and Ray Liu, were also amongst the spectators to witness this memorable moment.
